This place is a must visit. When we arrived we were in awe of the beach but when we took a walk we saw sting rays swimming right up to the shore line. Their large ones were the most impressive they came so close to the shore that we could see them so clearly. Standing in the water they would swim by and tap your leg with their fins. There was about 8 there at the same time. The rocks in the center of the beach were cool to explore with the goggles. The beach had many cool rocks and shells to explore. Parking was easy and they had public showers and toilets to use. No dogs allowed on this beach don’t get a fine respect the rules. Carley Young

Came here at around 1.30 pm the car park was very busy. Lucky that we got parking not too far away. I got to touch a smaller ray, I just waited and it came over and I was able to run my fingers on it. They’re magnificently graceful. I would highly recommend it. The beach was also beautiful with white sand. The water is chilly though even in summer. Lils S

What an incredible experience it was to visit this beach. I’m a Brit, and seeing rays and sharks up close is a real treat. On the day I visited I saw 4 rays, and was lucky enough to touch a few of them! On top of a that a 2m long nurse shark was patrolling the shoreline, in knee deep water! Incredible to see. Chris W
