Attractive place to visit
Jun 2021
A very relaxing place to visit, especially on sunny days. Good for self reflection and kept in a neat and tidy fashion.

Swimming beach
Mar 2021 • Couples
The bay has a nice swimming beach, Dolphin Discovery Centre, clean sand, a cafe, lawned areas, shade and sparkling water. You may see some of the dolphins if you're lucky. Well worth a visit especially if you're a swimmer.

Quiet beach. Good for watching dolphins.

Found it to be an excellent beach to sit and watch the dolphins and have a coffee at the coffee shop.

Magnificent beach in a pristine bay...and is made complete with wild dolphins
Jan 2021 • Family
Firstly, the bay exceeded our expectations. When we first tried to research a hotel, if we had known how gorgeous this beach was, we would have definitely voted to stay in this area in nearby accommodation.

The reasonably frequent visitation by wild dolphins is by definition not predictable but 11-12 out of 150+ dolphins actually visit closely in the bay and when we were there twice (so far) this week, we saw dolphins twice!

Recommendations to take advantage of the location and accessibility to this beach;
.the bay is isolated and has no waves. It is perfectly calm even on windy days. The sand is feathery soft and although there are boats mooring a few hundred meters away, there are no other nearby craft of any sort (eg. No wailing jet skis to be found). There were consistent helicopters scanning for sharks along the coastline. Sun lifeguard on board too.
.there are shade sails built into the beach for ready-to-use shade. We went on a Sunday and there were lots of families but didn’t run out of shade sail space. There were lots of other shade tents set up by families as well.
.plenty of parking. Lots.
.Nearby to the city centre and to Victoria St where there are all of the top rated restaurants and eateries.
.really clean water, sand and surroundings
.Dolphin Centre is on this ame bay - see separate review but is great for a visit
.beach Cafe is well worth the burgers - kids loved it but the hours are shorter than you would expect (see sea palate review)
.great access to showers, change rooms, external sand washing taps/showers, kids playground, and even a hard path to the water for wheelchairs

This beach is a definite hit for the region and well worth one or several visits

Beautiful location
Jul 2020 • Family
Beautiful location with lots to do.
Enjoy the new adventure playground or have something to eat or drink at the great kiosk / cafe.
The beach is awesome and pretty safe with minimal waves. If your lucky you might spot a dolphin or two. We came in the winter but it's absolutely beautiful in the summer.

Well designed
Jun 2020
What a lovely place to stop off for a walk and a quick play for the kids. It was definitely had some money put into it. It’s well thought out and very clean. It has water equipment for kids as well as a slide for younger kids and another for bigger kids. Lots of grass for picnics and plenty of parking.

Lovely
Jun 2020 • Couples
What a lovely bay. Wonderful for just a walk along the waterfront or to sit at the kids playground with a coffee from the cafe right on the waterfront. Walk to the dolphin centre is on a couple of minutes. And by the amount of people in the water swimming is pretty good also
