Often home pick for our famous local surfers. A beautiful local spot and a must see at sunset and sunrise.

Walking along here at sunset is amazing. So many people doing the same thing, really social. Surfers out doing there thing while others skate,bike and stroll the walkway. During the day is also a must. Sitting in between the rocks on the point is a great spot to relax.

Great wide beach for kids (although it's a way up to the flagged area) with plenty of safe lagoons to play in. Great beach side walks and a pleasant stroll up to the top of the Memorial Park. Plenty of eating options nearby too.

We walked along here today from cooly, the walkway along the road to the beach is easy to access and there was plenty of room for laying on the beach. Usually really good surf but not today.
