Surfer's paradise

Nice beach...rocky with sand when tide is low. Great waves to surf and wind for kite surfing. Lifeguards, change rooms and washrooms. Water temp was about 15C.

The view was gorgeous and the rocks are very pretty. Kids had fun playing on the sandy part of the beach but the water was very cold. Very windy place!

Massive car park. Looked to be some sort of cafe but it was all closed on the day of our visit. Beautiful, long beach but we didn't manage to walk that far due to the large cobbles. We did enjoy watching the surfers.

Beautiful setting to rock or fossil hunt. Change rooms available as well as washing off station. Surfing, boogie boarding, swimming (for the brave - water is cold) Gorgeous setting. Loved hearing the breakers again. Better than a spa for relaxation. Loved it

This beach is worth a visit, plenty of free parking behind the beach, there was showers available but the toilets were both out of use. The beach has a large area mainly peebles, it Seens popular with surfers.

Had a great time but only stayed a short time as it is still chilly at this time of year. went to see the view. Has a long stretch of beach with rocks and then sand. the dunes have wooden walkways over them to protect them. Often see surfers here but not today as it was not windy enough

Hurricanes off the coast create some exciting waves for those brave enough to surf the cold North Atlantic. Really entertaining for those that like to watch. Not great access for the wheelchair, hard to get over the large dunes, but there are a number of access points, along this expansive beach.

I visited Lawrencetown Beach on New Years Day on a little solo adventure as it is located close to my in-laws home at Martinique Beach.
