“Squeaky Clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Sand so clean it squeaks - so the advertisement says and I can vouch for it.

Oh did I mention it is very white too - we are used to our golden beaches here in Oz but this is very different - bring your sunnies and sunscreen the reflection is intense.

“Another lovely beach in Sydney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Yes this beach is off the beaten track and has a good reserve, but on public holidays it can be busy and parking limited. Be prepared for a walk from the nearest bus stop if using public transport. No facilities except toilets on the reserve. Rocky at each end of the beach, the sand is generally clean and good for sandcastles. However, little shade in the heat of the day so you have to bring your own. Good swimming .....no lifeguard. A little boat regularly comes by the bay and sells coffee or yogurt ... But not on a weekday out of the holiday season!

“Gorgeous and”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Rarely crowded, sort of like Sydney hasn't discovered this beach yet. Little to no public transport access so not so many visitors. Nice views across the bay, big park for playing sport/kids running and a little beach, good area for kayaking.

“Picture postcard white sand, turquoise water ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Just around the corner and a smaller beach than Hyams but a lovely place for relaxing or more active beach pursuits. When we visited around lunchtime mid week in October, we were the only ones there.
