Really views can offer good visual relief but eventually you want to dive right in. Apart from the enclosure at the northern end of the beach it isn't a refreshing location for the family to enjoy. Nice yes, and probably only really "enjoyable" a couple of months of the year. Lucky there are so many other great attractions close by!

Superb spot with the beach four miles long, with sunshades and loungers to hire, plus a manned Lifeguard station. Swam between the flags but later found shark nets did not get put up until November!

Mainly a walking beach however at the moment visitors should swim within the stinger net to avoid the jellyfish. Lovely area as is the walk to the lookout to take photos for a spectacular view of the beach!

Great beach to walk along, toes in the water. Lovely at 6am when cool. Safe to swim in the enclosure during stinger season, water very warm My only concern is half way down the beach there is overflow from? Has a smell of chlorine

Nice walk to do just as the sun is rising and before the day gets too hot. Clean and look out for the beach crabs.

Would love to have gone swimming but stinger season had started. A beach you cannot use. Water is not that clean from the coral. Netted swimming area not that appealing. Our beaches on the Central Coast N.S.W. so much better.

we had such a wonderful time n this beach . We watched the sun rise looking out to the Great Barrier Reef & saw the super moon rise in the evening. Such a perfect way to start & end a day.

Spend most of the day hanging out on the beach and getting some sun. There are plenty of places to get a drink or a bite to eat nearby. The beach itself is beautiful!

Once you walk away from the "swim area" this beach is really quiet and a beautiful place to walk or sit. I did swim in the designated area, but after finding out there's crocodiles and stingers that can still get through the nets I wasn't so keen. Even still if you don't choose to the swim, it's a beautiful place... More
