The endless walks along Grotto Beach are special. The pristine white beach is one of the best in the world! On some high days and holidays the beach close to the Dutchies restaurant can however be litter strewn.

This is a great beach- very clean with two choices of restaurants on the beach. Dutchies is great with good sushi! Will definitely visit again
