A lovely beach for singles, couples and most of all, families. I do avoid it over Christmas though as parking is tricky unless you get there early.

The beach is very clean and unspoilt. We visited in the middle of the afternoon and there were hardly any people and plenty of free parking spaces. There are several showering/changing blocks with toilets located along the beach. Many restaurants and caffes are located along the beach. There were several surf schools located along the road. Ideal for a refreshing... More

Beautiful beach, very clean and well serviced by cafes/restaurants and toilets! The harbour beach is not such nice sand, but is probably less windy and we thought the sea was a bit warmer. Plenty of places to sit in the shade of trees on either beach

This is a sensational beach for walking,walking and walking along. It goes on forever..... Beautiful clean beach with lots of shells. A perfect way to spend a few hours watching the tide come and go in many different directions. A wonderful range of bars, coffee shops and restaurants just a short walk away. Car parking right alongside the beach.

We parked right beside the beach and walked the length of it in the late afternoon. There were numerous picnic tables and a jet ski rental for those who were interested. We didn't stay long but we were impressed with the cleanliness of the beach area. There are many hotels in the area but we did not stay. However, if... More

An unspoilt Pacific beach even though close to shops and hotels. Delightful views of the mount. There is another beach (Pilot Bay) that is good for picnics,etc and has shallow qiet water for swimming.

We came for a State Ocean Swim and it was a perfect location. Beautiful beach with lovely dunes and close to an assortment of cafes and eateries. Gorgeous golden sand to walk in and warm sea for a dip. The end near the Mount has quite a shelf which makes for good surf; the southern end is easier for a... More

Absolutely loved the white sand beach at the mount. Was a stellar day - not a cloud in the sky! The water was beautiful and crystal clear, it felt like we were in the tropics. No sign of Pam, apart from the surf!

This beach is absolutely brilliant. Long, flat at low tide, warm water in February & March, not crowded. Surf Clubs patrol in summer. Just the most delightful beach I have ever walked and swam in.
