We took a short drive from Arlie beach and even tho you can see the damage from Debbie. It is still beautiful. You can drive up the hill, where there is a look out.

There is not a whole lot to do actually. Have a coffee or go for a walk on the beach board walk which follows the beach line. There are lots of little Cafes on the walk. Enjoy😀
