The dogs and their owners were having a great time on the beach. There is a park nearby which is called Plantation Point Park which is a... More

This is a pristine holiday area boasts many beaches, all offering perfection,but for me i liked this white sanded beach with absolutely clear water. Its a cosy stretch of sand,only one km long with calm water and some excellent waves when the surf's up. Amenities are all here and dogs allowed off the leash between 4 pm and 8 am.... More

It good to watch the frigates and helicopters in the distance. Plus I am lucky to spot a pod of dolphins just about every time I visit. Through the week the beach... More

Our nearest beach, used by locals to walk their dogs. Sounds bad? No, the locals are friendly, if you are, and the dogs are very well-behaved. There's loads of wildlife and stunning sunrises and sunsets.

We stayed a short distance from this beach. Was fun watching all the dogs run about and swim in the evening. Good parking, grassy area nearby for picnics.

Our dog loved this beach! It's off leash for dogs after 4pm and it's great to have a run around up and down the awesome sand with the dog! The water was clean and the waves were small enough to have a safe swim in.
