A lovely beach where you can walk all the way along the foreshore to Waterman's Bay and further. The beaches along the way are delightful and great for swimming, especially Mettam's Pool.

The beach is lovely and easily accessed. With the current construction work it is a little trickier. It was a lovely clean beach.

Lawn area and amphitheatre (shaded) to sit if you don't want to sit on the sand. Great to swim or to just relax watching the surfers.

A wonderful stunning beach. At one end is Hillarys - a lovely place to visit for a coffee or some shopping.
