5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Amazing view from the lookout ... watching the huge swell, the surfers braving the waves and the rugged coastline.

“Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Okay to look at but no big deal. I expected to see massive waves but overall it was just average. Much nicer beaches on the way to the 12 Apostles

“Beautful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Lovely beach for running around with the kids, parking available. A fair few steps to go down, and lovely views across the bay from the platform at the top of the steps.

“Holy Grail of Surfing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

You can feel the history as soon as you park, the views are amazing and watching the surfers battle the giant waves is a credit to their surfing abilities.
Beautiful views up and down the coast of Victoria - hold on to your hats as it can get very windy
