You cant beat runing into the ocean after a hot hards days work. I can always find a car parking spot and the beach is always clean and tidy. I also like how the local council have provided a dog walking area

Even though we only live south of the river we thought we would head up for a night and to take advantage of the surf. Lovely place though is undergoing construction work so limits access a bit. Still a beautiful beach. Will return soon

Lovely soft sand. Was quite windy a occasion and had a shelf type entry to the sea so not for the faint hearted!

A lovely beach where you can walk all the way along the foreshore to Waterman's Bay and further. The beaches along the way are delightful and great for swimming, especially Mettam's Pool.

The beach is lovely and easily accessed. With the current construction work it is a little trickier. It was a lovely clean beach.
