“Lovely beach”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We couldn't be bothered to hire a car and stumbled across this beach whilst exploring beyond Nelson's dockyard. It was very peaceful and, although we didn't eat there, we understand that Catherine's Place (which has relocated here) is one of the best places to eat.

“Cyrstal clear water”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

A beautiful beach. We enjoyed the swim there. Small ships were tendering their passengers in and they had BBQ's going. Beach is at bottom of hill. If you go up the hill and then down you will come to Nelson's Dockyard...takes about 12 mins to go and about 17 mins to get back to beach since you have to walk uphill a bit.

“Definitely Worth it!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

This beach is easy to find! It has sand with lovely calm refreshing water. There are lots of trees for shade and open beach for the sun lovers. There are picnic benches and a great playground for the kids. We went on a Saturday and there were lots of local families having a great time which is so nice to see locals enjoy their beautiful homeland.

There are two restaurants one is pub food and one is a little nicer. We ate at the nicer restaurant and the food was fabulous! The beach is in a harbour so you can look at all the beautiful sailboats!

If you are staying in the area this beach is perfect!

“Stunning and quiet”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Really nice beach with restaurants either end. Lovely views of hills opposite and boats coming in and out and best bit is trees all along providing welcome shade if you do not want to burn. Did see but not use posh toilet shower block back off beach for $1
