Though the beach is fantastic, its the amount of people wandering nude, very embarrassing going with a family with little kids.

Beautiful beach with 4wd entry. Saw 2 cars bogged. Drop your tyre pressure to 16-18 and take care. Very soft sand when we visited but lovely beach. Nudists around but big beach to enjoy your own space.

This is one of the best places to go in Port Stephens. You can still take your car on to the beach and the sand hills. This beach so far has escaped the over regulation that is so common in the area. I would recommend...More
