Great beach with an interesting selection of eateries, and the somewhat obligatory Ann's cottage for all your surf related purchases. I hear parking is sometimes a problem due to smart parking being a little agressive with their parking times/fees

The beach is beautiful so big and Sandy. Plenty going on with the surf boards and bodyboards. You can just sit down and watch all that is going on.

Highly recommend a park called HENDRA approximately 10 mins drive or a bus stop outside. May not be the cheapest around tho. Worth a look.
