We really liked this beach. We went in Dec 2018 and Jan 2019, so we weren't swimming just wading, looking for shells etc. There were nice bathrooms and showers for cleaning up. There was a parking fee.

Paud 15.00 to park. The beach is covered in seaweed and tiny flies. Not a place I would sit and relax or take kids. The surfers had a great time with the big waves. And the skyboarders enjoyed the winds! Fun for water activities but...More
