Fodor's Review

A narrow, winding, unsealed road off South Coast Road, 46 km (29 mi) west of Seal Bay Road, ends at this perfect little sandy cove. Rocky headlands on either side protect the gently sloping beach so swimming is safe. To the east are several secluded beaches; these are more exposed, though, and riptides make swimming dangerous. Amenities: parking; toliets. Best For: swimming; walking; surfing.
