“Nicely maintained.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

This is a good place to take the family. There is a snack bar with plenty of seating in the shade, indoor and outdoor showers, changing rooms. and easy access to the parking lot. (IF you can find a space. Parking is LIMITED.) The beach is safe for children as shallow water extends very far out and the waves are well, minimal. The water temp in winter is on the cool side, but lots of people swim.

“everything for a great day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

For a good day on the beach just take a towel and costume. There are changing rooms, showers and a snack bar. The snack bar is run by one man and just watch him handle things as the orders come in, and all done with a smile. Must try is the toasted cheese sandwich !! mmm !!
Top tip if you want a refreshing orange ice lolly, dont ask for it by name !! point to the one on the advertising picture, or you will receive a fizzy orange drink with lots of ice ? very refreshing none the less and he was so busy we did not like to say it was not what we call an ice lolly ha ha !!
If you take a car to this beach you must pay for parking, even if you park in the street you will need to put a beach parking ticket on the screen. If you have a hire car make sure you take the car registration with you to the pay meter or you will be having to go back to the car to get it as you have to enter it into the machine for the ticket. The parking is very cheap, we paid 3 dollars and we were there for about 4 hours so its not bad at all. You can stay for as little as 10 minutes for a few cents if you just want a quick look around.
There are lovely seating areas at the rear of the beach, a lakeside area and a childrens play area.
Top tip:
If you are within walking distance of the beaches do not take the car as you will end up queuing for a parking place, you will get parked but why bother if you can take in the lovely surroundings and walk there.
