  • Fantastic little beach which is usually not full thanks to the slightly more difficult access, and the fact it's only usable at low to medium tide. The sand is always moist as a result, which is perfect for sand castles, and there is a stunning cave to explore if I've gets bored of sunbathing. The water was crystal clear on our two visits, and apparently there is also good diving and snorkeling in this cove, as evidenced by the strait clad punters we saw on both occasions. What more could one want?
  • Nice beach with natural shelter from the waves. It's not as crowded as nearby beaches. However, be prepare to climb down to the beach as the stears go only half way down the cliff!
  • Went first in the cave with a boat and then walked on the top. Good to walk if you want to see amazing views. It will leave you really without breath. Some stairs are going down from there but those are not to go to the cave. Water colour is amazing as you can see the see bottom from the top of the cave. On this footpath there are a lot of mind blowing views to enjoy. Wish you all to go there one day.
  • Beautiful beach. Secluded. Access to grotto at low tide. Unbelievable.
  • Beautiful little cove and very quiet when the other beaches are rammed.
