  • Absolutely beautiful. Great for a stroll along the beach. Lot if little critters to find amongst the rocks. Parks are near by for the little ones.
  • Great spot for the family. Picnic areas, tables, bbq, toilets and kids playground. Some good fishing to be had as well off the Rocks in the dry season.
