Small effort to get to but well worth the walk. Beautiful, clean and peaceful. A great place if you don't feel like doing battle to find a private spot on a hot day. Just be careful not to walk on the flat rocks with no shoes!

I love the drive through the beautiful trees to the beach and how the beach is in a city but has bush going down to the beach so has a natural look around it.

You can see a lot of youngsters busy in a game of volleyball in evenings. Very friendly atmosphere. You can always join a match.
