This beach has it all; warmer water, sand, views, waterfall, picnic facilities, washrooms, surf. There are lots of locals using this beach and many of them in the water. Great stop for the family.

Just the fact that a waterfall flows into this beach makes it a must see. The ocean water has a lot of debris but once you get over it the water is warm and the waves are great for body surfing. There are bathrooms and...More

The beach is beautiful and the waves were crashing in. There were a few people with surfboards but playing in the waves was so much fun! Nice to have the lifeguards on duty also! Hi light of our trip for sure!
