We have been to this beach three times over the years and always go back. Don't expect any 'attractions', the beach is all you need. It's a stunning unspoiled view, very quiet and you can get a bit of shade under the trees. Swimming is...More

There is Smiling Harrys along the road, but we went to the Beach Bum Shack overlooking the bay a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely excellent. Can recommend the grilled chicken strips.
