Beautiful beach, great waves - can't go wrong with this beach. Bring your own food and refreshments. Parking is offsite and a tram provides access to the beach.

This is lovely beach. It is best to get a pass to national park beaches if you plan on going to these beaches more than three times. If you walk down the beach you can get away from all the people.

Great waves, really nice beach. Just as long there are no sharks! Pack a lunch and spend the day, relax and enjoy.

I don't know. I would imagine yes since there were dogs at the beach.

I do not know. The parking at the beach for me is expensive however, there is a small parking close to the beach I think right hand but is for two hours. You can go on your bike is very nice ride!
