Very crowded, toilets are dirty, sea has some dangerous rip currents at certain times during the day and personal belongings are not safe. Do not pay for surf lessons as there is a chance you won't actually get them!

Great vibe. Great waves. No current. Locals surfing. Lots of families with kids. We stayed in the backpackers on the beach. Everything we needed. Perfect location for a holiday.

What can I say. This is one of the hottest, most popular summer spots. Excellent little beach, good waves for surfing, lifesavers, good food at the Restaurant and EXCELLENT ice cream! Go early... or you might not get a spot!

Very scenic experience. Rather long walk to the beach from the parking area, but worth the view. Do take the walk to the end of life.

I don't think Victoria Bay is a good beach for dog walking. Certain areas of Wilderness beach is more suitable for dog walking. I hope this helps.
