“Miles and miles of beautiful white sand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

The beach has good parking, ablution facilities, life guards. There is a little restaurant where one can have light lunches and drinks and we bought ice-cream from the ice-cream van. There is a play area for kids and lots of rocks and things to explore on the side. One can walk for miles and miles... the setting is just beautiful. Lovely spot to walk at sunset.

“Huge, wild and windy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

If you like a long, wild beach to walk along this is the one for you. 13 miles long!! Dutchies beach cafe and showers and tiolets at one end and De Kelders at the other end. Can be very windy but great for running and walking.
