You could not design a more kid friendly beach. Warm water, loads of small tidal pools, crabs and shallow water that goes on for miles. Kids just love this beach.

We met relatives at the beach and used one of the covered picnic areas (reserved in advance). The playground area for children, and the beach for exploring and swimming made for a great place to gather. The tide goes way out, so it is a long walk to the water.

Our two bedroom apartment backed on to this beach. Lovely and safe for the children to swim in and not too cold.

...building and paddling forever. A super safe beach for kids of all ages. The low tide goes out 1 km leaving behind small pools full with small crabs.
