A great beach offering good waves on its day, ocean baths to swim in and a few cafes and bars. Parking get's tight, not a lot of spaces.

Day was recovering from constant rain. Refreshing gale and clearing sky made this a spectacular view, the surf being whipped up, swirling its way to the beach.

A lot of people walk their dogs on the foot path adjacent to the beach. Highly popular. However dogs are not allowed on this beach. There is a designated dog beach some 10 minutes away (Horseshoe Beach) next to Nobby's Beach.
