Love this spot. Fabulous in any season. Wear good supportive shoes: to walk the whole way around you have to climb over a rock bluff... at least at high tide. Great span of beach, beautiful walk. The walk has hills and a little minimal climbing......More

Pipers offers a variety of "chill": relax on a beach, go for an extended walk, swimming, flying kites, wading on the lagoon side, etc. Excellent location for all ages and the view is stunning. Wonderful way to spend the day.

Beautiful spot within the city for a walk and to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature. So peaceful and relaxing. A treasure within. Nice spot to pick shells. Stop by you will be happy you did.
