Surf or get pissed. - This place is not as good as Florence Bay but it does get a little break on lowtide, never surfed in a cyclone swell looked to choppy and on shore compared to Florence. On the plus side there is a rad pub across the road, which is where you'll find me when come over to Maggie for a surf and I'm bitterly disapointed.
