there is parking up in the camping ground but if camping up there u have to buy a parking ticket, showers/toilets also avaliable on camping ground.
when out in the surf make sur to get as much energy out of the wave as u can if going for inverts and aerial type tricks as the waves arent very powerful. also watch out for the occasional longboarder
this is an awsome spot on good days but isnt always consistant.good for longboarders and all surfers, good bodyboarding surf when the waves are tops. there is also a good secret spot on the reef that picks up really good most days. learnt all my tricks there (inverts ARS barrel rolls)
It is a bit of a families beach, in the holidays it can get pretty crowded. But its a pretty good beach.
