  • Fascinating the way the water and sand are in constant change. Great to see the community involved in preserving and restoring the estuary.
  • Very relaxed place, ideal for camping and disconnecting from noise pollution. In season it is very likely to see turtles, availability of a boat trip over the estuary with the possibility of seeing crocodiles among other varied fauna of the extremely wide place.
