“Perfect Family holiday spot”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

If you have a young family or a mixed age family, this is perfect. There are shallow paddling pools free to access by the shore, plus a fully enclosed swimming area with diving boards, 50 metre lap swim area and a great boardwalk. There are food outlets and lots of lovely grass areas for picnics or BBQs. Frankly this is one of the most ideal family holiday spots I have seen.

Of course if you are looking for a surf beach or white sandy beaches, you will need to keep moving down the coast...

“Lovely relaxing area”
Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

This is a wonderfully maintained beach front with a range of things to see at all times of the year. Cafes, restaurants and activities longer the shore front for those of all different interests. Note, that the bollards can not have their photo taken for commercial reuse, which I found interesting, as does it mean they cannot even be posted here?

“A graet place for families”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

This beach front area is well maintained and is an easy place to spend the day. There are BBQs, sheltered picnic tables, a free chidrens swimming pool, bathroom facilities, plenty of green lawn, a prominard over the water, a dredged swiming and diving area that is fenced off from the open water and life gaurds at peak times. This is a very popular meeting place for locals. The "Beach House" cafe, bar and restaruant operates all year round.

“Loved it.”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We went to this beach and were happily surprised by the big Free pool right by this beach. We made good use of it, and would recommend it if your travelling with kids.
