Ever seen a Macko Shark? - In the mid 1970's we lived at Spirits Bay for a full summer - the camping was free at that time. My most memorable image is of the Macko Shark caught in the surf by a fisherman. They hung it in a tree to weigh it. Came in at 365 pounds - a man eater. It scared the surfers and swimmers out of the water for a few days. Have fun in the surf but watch out for the sharks. Good luck.

dirty? - Dude Spirits Bay has probably the cleanest water and air than anywhere in the world! Nearest house is like a billion miles away. Incredible place, you'll have it to yourself!
