  • Good beach. Great place to see the sun set. The open market Thursday and Sunday is unique. Maybe 80 food trucks plus music and local craft stuff, including a real crocodile hunter.  more »
  • Great sunset views at 630pm. Beach is nice for a walk. Be warned. Can't swim as stingers, sharks & crocs will nab you. Food stalls are average. Try the Greek Donut s, Loukoumades. They are the best. A...  more »

  • Not a beach goer myself but by chance I stumble onto a scenic and magnificent piece of landmark that truly gives you something to remember by. I never thought that beach could have so many delightful lively entertainment, my perception was beach is a lazy sluggish place where not so resourceful people go ingenuously and sluggishly to waste their time. This has open up my conception and insight into attractive places and grasp the colourful splendor they have to offer that has eluded me because of my farsightedness. Apart from the bustling activities surrounding the serene sight they also has a night market comes nightfall. This flea market comes with live performances and a great number of stores selling hand made products and those imported from nearby. Of course there are plenty of hawker stores selling burgers and different varieties of Asian food. Its nice, colourful and very inspiring and a pleasurable stopover. Definitely will be back during my next vacation.
