  • The beach is so lovely and with the waves relaxing. You could go for a walk if you need the exercise. The waves is my opinion has a calming effect on my soul.  more »

  • Fantastic. Beach is protected by headland. Clean and aqua clear water. Beautiful sea temperature.
  • Didn’t get bottled by any homeless people, did get stung by a blue bottle though. Still stayed in because this beach is heaven.
