Beautiful white sand, clean water, not crowded. Plenty of room for everyone. Lovely clean public bbq areas and covered seating for family gatherings, and a good wide footpath along the Esplanade for walkers.

Expansive beaches. Clean water and sand. Lots of room for young people and children alike. Perfect at any time of day but particularly glorious early morning.
