This one and half mile long beach consists of the finest hard packed sand and is perfect for walks, bike rides, beach combing and surfing. Take a walk down the beach to Frank Island which is only a short stroll away during low tides and explore the fascinating marine life in the tidal pools of the rocky headlands at both ends of the beach.
