We were all in the area to enjoy our birthdays. Hastings and the surrounding area offered so much: beaches; food and a great time!

Pretty beach with soft sand, and a great place to watch the sun set. Minimal facilities - but near everything.

Plenty of space to enjoy the wonderful sea.Also several good places to cool off with a Banks and some lovely fish at good prices! Chicken George is a must and a most helpful person who will go out of his way to help you enjoy your time spent there.

A wonderful beach to stroll along. Absolutely fantastic sunset spot. The beach is well maintained -- not much rubbish at all.

Nice beach at the end of the boardwalk with a small pool area for cooling off in. Not much room for a good long swim and although others tried crossing the shallow reef to snorkel, its not that safe out there and not worth the effort. 15 minute walk to Rockley beach and snorkelling the breakwater is generally pretty good....

A nice beach next to Graeme Hall Swamo, which is a great place to visit and see. The water lilies are great colours.

This beach is amazing and no feeling of intimidation. Left alone to enjoy no constant hassle of people selling local products. Super soft sands and clear blue waters.

We loved this beach - it was excellent. It is a lovely stretch of beach - the water is gorgeous, clean and safe. Hardly anyone there and more importantly - No Sellers! To be able to relax on a gorgeous beach and go into the water without worrying about our bags is brilliant. Normally one of us has to stay... More
