Lovely place to stop for a look. Didn't swim as the water was too cold. Lots of families enjoying the beach. Didn't see any Sting-rays (friends saw heaps the day before)

Stopped in for a quick visit to see if there was any rays. Weather was a bit rough and overcast so weren’t many to see. Still a beautiful day. Will hopefully come back when the waves are there!

Popped down for 30minutes and saw 2 rays. Lovely little walk, abut too much seaweed to swim in some places. Lots of spaces to park. Clean toilet. Worth a visit to see the rays

I am also not 100% sure . The beach I believe is not a national park. I feel if they are on a lead that should be fine. When your contact the accomodation places you want to stay at they will know what the rules are. There... More
