“Beautifully located with good food & service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

Really good food , well presented with a good range of wines but the prices seem to be a little more expensive than other comparable local restaurants. maybe one has to pay more for the outstanding view.

There is nothing to dislike. The sand is soft, the scenery is beautiful, there is a good restaurant and first class toilets.

“good family beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2011

life guards, hot snacks, restaurant, beach shops, ice cream, large sandy beach, rock pools at the edges, generally gentle sea waves. what more can you ask for - oh a visit from a friendly seal while taking a swim!
