Loved this beach location with plenty of restaurants, cafes and gift shops. Perfect for families and couples with plenty of activities for everyone. Peaceful or busy whatever you feel like doing. Amazing beaches that aren't overcrowded. I will be back again next summer.

Protected from the prevailing southerly winds, beautiful beach all year round but the water in winter is generally smoother, great life guard service, ample restaurants, water temp in summer is about 23C & 18C in winter, clean white sand, bathe between the red and yellow flags.
