The water is amazing, the council does an outstanding job of keeping the beach spotless. The beach is safe for kids and the play area at the back of the beach is a welcome relief for smaller kids.

This is a lovely beach with opportunity to walk around the headland to Snapper Rock and Rainbow Bay. Plenty to geek space to have a picnic or just hop across the road to the many cafes and eateries.
