“My Local Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is probably my favourite beach in the world. It is also the one closest to home! OK, so the sea is not for snorkling but the waves are just right for boogie boarding, and even the kids can do that. The view along the beach is spectacular, there are decent facilities on the beachfront and of course, Richards Bake & Shark. Just don't go on a public holiday!!
