Lots of surfers and walkers. Lots of dogs with their people. Waves crashing on the shore, pounding on rocks out on the reef.

We had a lovely walk along this beautiful beach. The sand was wet enough to walk easily without getting soggy and the rocks were interesting to explore.

When the tide is low, you can walk towards the island to catch the sunset. You will see many beautiful homes along the beach.

Great long beach for walking and viewing the sunsets and skyline. The amazing waves and surfers keep you glued to their actions, while the roar of the ocean just blows you away. Lots of people in the summer while winter during the week is pretty quiet. Easy to walk, highly recommend it

Given a yearly visit in the past, I can vouch for the long sandy beaches for endless play. Years ago this beach was a favourite hippy hangout but has since evolved into a sophisticated tourist destination. The road to the West Coast is now a beautiful highway. I have known people who have had surf lessons here with relatively little swimming experience; this scares me but they had an excellent experience and came away safe and with a little more respect for the sea and elements. This is nature at its best with beautiful summer days with a steady ocean breeze and blustery wind and sea in the winter. Nearby is fine dining and real estate is now abundant. Looking far out to sea at full tide I once saw a pod of whales tossing a log in the air. Whale watching tours are available in the area.
