What a lovely day to spend a sunny day. Protected waters for all ages to swim. Lovely safe bay in the ocean.

The water was crystal clear and ideal for swimming or just paddling and walking the beach, sunsets were also quite spectacular. Great photos were achieved on different times of the day,

Lovely swimming beach. We came down here for a drive one day and to have lunch at the lookout. The waves were HUGE - probably at least 5metres. This was a great place to see nature at work that's for sure.

A beautiful location hidden by the Pines with a clean and safe lagoon, sheltered from the wild sea by a reef, interestingly, covered with pumice pieces washed ashore from a subterranean volcano on our visit.

Must be the best little beach in the world. History and breathtaking scenery meld together. Enough said!

It is a beautiful place. Well worth snorkeling as the fish are plenty and the colour of the reef was fantastic. Hire a wet suit from land and sea if you think the water is too cold as it is a must.

We would have swam in the Bay but the weather was very cold with a horrific wind blowing and this was the 9th November, it was sunny though
