My favourite place to visit. Beautiful beach and crystal clear sea. Life guards on duty to make you feel really safe to. Great for a day out with our young family. Plenty of affordable parking near by.

We decided to go on a whim for our second anniversary and absolutely loved it! Experienced everything, from a dip in the sea, to seeing penguins, buying matching jewellery, getting ice cream and seeing the pier. Absolutely phenomenal day and would go again any time!...More

I always park at the hotel,and on average pay between 8-10 per ,24 hr period. I think the parking near beach will cost much more,that's if you can find a space
