This is a pretty little beach, nestled in a pretty little cove. It has a long metal boat launch ramp and we enjoyed watching a pair of surfers launch their jet ski off it. The surfing was great. The views were great. And it's a nice place to swim. Good all around.

Good for swimming, boating, sunbathing, and surfing.There isn't anywhere to shelter from the sun, but most people had sun shades. It is lovely to have the tap to wash off feet and toilets by the White Elephant cafe as well.

The place has been spruced up since visiting 3 years ago. Nice to see well laid out paths and good roads and parking. Well done. Nice views over the ocean.

Stayed at the Resort close to beach and had a short walk to beach which has a café there. Not too crowded either so was good for us.

we went there on recommendation of locals for a safe place for kids to swim, went there about 7.00pm, the water was very invigorating (cold) but refreshing, no waves in protected bay, great location and 10 minutes drive from Margaret River, great place to watch the sunset from.

Come here everytime we come down to Margaret river. We normally stay near by so it is lovely to come to this beach and have a coffee or a swim. Beautiful scenery.
