Love this place, always busy but still well worth it. Couldn't think of a better way to spend the evening watching the surf and dolphins right in front of you while having your dinner and a drink or two!!

One of the worlds best right hand sand bottom waves. When it is small the inside of the break is great for kids to learn on.

This a great spot to watch all the many surfers trying to catch that perfect wave. This beach is not patrolled but it is good for the kids to paddle and play. There is a great picnic area with BBQs with a shaded area.
