Haven't been here since the late 1990s and what was a quiet little beach is now extremely noisy with loud piped music, and beach games! OK I if that's what you want - we don't.

I visited on a Sunday, which meant that it was very busy but I also preferred Melliaha beach because it wasn't so commercialized. The waves at Golden Bay were also massive which was fun for about 10 minutes but you couldn't do much else. There's also a great big hotel in the background so hardly a pretty site
