This beach was nicer than I expected. We had been to pigeon point and there was a lot of sea weed there. But this beach was clean and clear. I don't swim but you can sit in the water and it is as clean and clear. And you don't even have to pay to get in unlike pigeon point which... More

I've been here a few times over the years and it feels like nothing has changed. You can buy sun loungers if you want and there's a little bar/restaurant that does light bites and drinks. A very pretty natural beach with patchy shade a calm warm waters. What's not to like?

The water at this beach is great for swimming, but one has to be careful as depending on where you are bathing, there may not be a life guard on site. However, there are generally warning flags up

Easy access from the road to beach, lovely inshore snorkel site. Scenic. Washrooms, foot baths, bar, sun, sea, and sand the most important!

Took my kids here to surf, very affordable price for the afternoon, be careful of the coral and the waves are on shallow water and if your fall off you might get scraped. Ok beach but Pigeon Point is a way better beach.
