A large expanse of sand. Ideal for surfers, if a little cold and windy this weekend! Shops, cafe and surf school all on site.

I highly recommend this beach it has more than just sand! The surf is fantastic! If you are not a surfer you can just relax on the beach. There are rocks you can climb over, rock pools to explore and an amazing view of the local coast line to the right and left. If this is not enough you can... More
