  • Favourite beach! Love the ice cream, park play area... beach can get full on the one side when the weather is really good. Water is always worth a dip! Security is excellent. Leave our things on the shore, go for a dip, come back to find our things exactly where we left them! Law enforcement, lifeguard, sharkspotters, shark net all on site!
