Take an evening walk and enjoy a bit of paradise! Wide, expansive double crescent beach with incredible views and plenty of room for everybody.

This beach was a stones throw from our accommodation and almost deserted. It was so clean and pristine signified by the amount of life in the rockpools! You could watch romantic sunsets or surfing waves crashing on the beach, do some beachcombing or workout. It was beautiful!

A wonderful place to walk and enjoy the shore. It was mid July but there was still a lot of room to spread out. We enjoyed watching the surfers.

I love the new bathroom and changeroom facilities. The beach is busy with all the surfers. Many surf schools go there to teach beginers.

The waters are really cold if one wishes to swim, though one could find lots of people wearing wet suit and surfing in. It's not crowded, though a sandy beach. I collected blue,indigo & silver colored shells on the beach for my shell collection :)

We enjoyed exploring the beach and at low tide the island. So much ocean wildlife! There were many, many starfish.

Nice sandy beach with great mountain backdrops - reminded me of some of the Maui beaches - nice photos. The beach was divided into 2 sides - Pacific ocean and cove. The cove side was great for surfing with lots of surfing schools holding lessons there. I went on a weekday and barely got a spot in the parking lot.... More
