Had a great time with our 5 and 7 year old at this beach. The waves can be strong and ‘dumpy’ at times. Great for a morning walk too.

This beach is brilliant for experiencing the sunrise. Its white sand invites for long walks or a run along the bay as well as playing ball. To cool down there is nothing better than jumping into the high waves and surf or boogie board.

Having parked at the end of Sanderling Avenue we romped over the sand dunes to 5 kms of beach with our Son, Grandson and their dog where we dodged in and out of the chilly sea avoiding the strong undertow.
