Carlo Sand Blow, was a great walk. Pity it was a drizzly day. Still a good walk - approx. 500m, gradual incline. Easy to find.

Mind-blowing natural attraction. Following a short walk from the car park you are greeted by a wonderful sight of the sand dunes and wide expanse of sand. We enjoyed some sand boarding on our boogie board too. Beautiful vistas of the ocean as well.
