The beach features clean white sand with generous access from the road for half of its length.

There's plenty to do and explore ranging from long beach walks, playing in the sand, swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, kayaking, exploring Goat Island through to climbing around the Southern rocks to a huge rock pool.
