“If you're in the area anyway, no reason not to go”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Didn't spend much time there, but it was pleasant, and the gift shops had interesting things. The aquarium looked a little sad, though.

“Beautiful scenic viewpoints”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The walk along the beach is quite nice, but the beach is not allowed to access with guards watching it. That's however not a nuisance since the sand seems to be more like gravel, and there are probably some very strong currents in the water! The scenery, especially up near the scenic point illustrated in the picture, is grand with strong seas and huge waves exploding against the rocks below. Worth the drive out of the city!

“A beautiful letdown”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Was expecting more from this beach. First of all there is no swimming permitted to to the rip tides or something along those lines, and then the sand is not at all as nice after living in Australia.
The bus doesn't run often, so it was a quick trip. If you go then I recommend you rent a car.
