“safe option”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Not too busy and even the vendors were telling people to be careful with their possessions and were looking out for people. Known as the safer of the beaches and very beautiful as well.

“I's got to be done”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Fabulous beach, lots to ... watch. Many vendors on the beach but they are not a nuisance. They move on if you say no. They sell drinks, bbq'd prawns, bikinis, hats, sunscreen...

For this to be winter season it was 75 outside and it was still a nice crowd at the beach. Very clean beach although the people selling stuff will get on your nerves! dont drink alot because you have to pay to use the bathroom
