The police presence to ensure everyone's safety was a good start. This beech is safe, clean and convenient with the restaurant overlooking the beach. The beach itself has a long stretch before the water with ample space for the kids to play and even lawns where you can put up your gazebo and picnic for the day. No alcohol allowed... More

This little bay is kept extremely clean and well maintained, situated just 10 kilometres from George, it has a gentle beach and a lovely boardwalk with a number of accomodation options, it is also serviced by a coffee shop/eatery.

We found this by accident and what a surprise. A lovely little beach cove. Lovely grass patch to sit on and is well protected from the weather elements. There were few people there and away from the maddening crowds. This is well recommended if you want to find a quiet beach spot for the day.

Just stopped for the view which was amazing. Was nice to go somewhere quiet and not overrun with tourists and just sit and watch the waves and surfers

Vic Bay is a very special place. You can watch everyone surf 50m away or throw a line from the pier. There are a few houses and guest houses right on the water... More

The facilities are kept in good order.The beach can get very crowded over peak times, so get there early to avoid having to park miles away.There are scenic walks along the old railway line but be advised, do not walk alone or with visible valuables, there...

One of few places where you can wake up with the waves almost in your lap. Kids play for hours on the small beach and rock pool while you are only metres away to keep an eye on them and the ocean. The jetty's edge makes you feel you are only an arm's length away from local surfers (and sometimes... More

If you are looking for a small, intimate place for a swim this will be ideal. The beach is clean and though small, it is ideal for a short walk or just to sunbathe. There is a small play area for children and a view area at the top.
