Generally quiet with plenty of space to have some peace and quiet. Spectacular setting, soft sand and away from the hussle of busier beaches

Stopped here to admire the view and have lunch at the beach bar. Great shrimp wraps, very tasty! Took a while, but worth the wait. Bay looks nice too. Bit too much seaweed for my taste, but quiet and wild, just how I like it!

The view from the top on your way there is gorgeous. The water is rough, but go to the further left that’s a nice area for bathing. Lot of parking space.

This is an untouched beach - stunning location and rustic environment.. the food is delicious, cooked to order, friendly staff and a full bar service.. Shade in the restaurant next to the picturesque beach, an ideal way to spend the afternoon!

Clearly a beautiful beach, but choked by seaweed. Slight smell of rotting vegetation everywhere. Two lonely bars with no customers. There appeared to be some seaweed free sand at the far side of the beach, but it didn't seem worth the walk in the very...More

There is Smiling Harrys along the road, but we went to the Beach Bum Shack overlooking the bay a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely excellent. Can recommend the grilled chicken strips.
