A lovely beach where you can walk all the way along the foreshore to Waterman's Bay and further. The beaches along the way are delightful and great for swimming, especially Mettam's Pool.

The beach is lovely and easily accessed. With the current construction work it is a little trickier. It was a lovely clean beach.
