Park Your car in the parking lot. Go on low tide. It has a very heavy barrel all year round with mostly sand bottom which means you can push it hard. In summer it is mostly lefts which double suck and bowl very nicely. In winter the banks change to mostly rights which can be as hollow as the reef but close out a bit. Get in early in the mornings.
On an epic winter morning at 4-6ft it looks like Kirra. Just amazing.
Offers a good option if you can not handle the crowds that Cave gets somtimes. Also if Cave is to heavy or you just want a bit of space in the water.
