“Beats anything Australia has to offer!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Being from Australia,i was delighted to see such wonderful beaches. Everything here you can do in Queenslands but at a higher quality. The fish and chips are amazing,the seafood is well priced and much more moorish than Australian rubbish and the surroundings unscathed or bogans and litter bugs. Going back to Australia just depresses me,which is why i dont ever plan to go back!

“great place to surf and windsurf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Love coming here great for surf and wind surf and views onto Godrevy Lighthouse. The tide comes in pretty fast and the small area does get packed in the summer. great place for a romantic stroll in the evening when the crowds have gone

“Quality beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Fantastic beach that never gets too crowded, Lifeguarded by the excellent RNLI, cafe, parking and toilets all nearby. Great for body boarding and even has a surf school located nearby for those that want to have lessons or rent equipment

“Beautiful.,well worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Been to this beach,so many times i don't. keep count anymore. The tide comes in pretty quick when it does,so be carefull.Godrevy light house is a short walk along the beach,and if you can manage it walk up the hill to see the seal sanctuary,there were about 130 seals resting in the cove past the light house when we went there last time.
