Has a walkway from the Lighthouse fish and chip shop along the from of the marina, out along the breakwater wall and back down to the surf club. Peaceful. Plenty of picnic tables. Swimming permitted between the flags. Love it!!!

Nice beach but very quiet when we were there on a Tuesday morning. The beach slopes down a fair bit to the water. Lots of driftwood on this beach.
