We stopped here to stretch our legs and watch a few canoeists go by. The small beach area was very busy for mid morning and must get crowded in the height of summer

We had really been looking forward to seeing this natural arch, but on arrival did not even stop for a walk to it as it was just too busy with cars and people everywhere. Very disappointing.

The views are marvellous. Parking is a real pain on hot summer days. Some areas only accessible via difficult paths. Plenty of water-based activities are available but there are almost no toilet or cafe facilities nearby.

Well worth a visit but go early like 8am otherwise no parking. The beach by the arch is great for relaxing and there is a safe area for bathing
