What a great beach, with two large swimming pools as well. Lovely to see so many people swim in the pools, on very cool mornings, along with all the board riders in the sea.

We found this a lovely sheltered beach for kids that was clean and although dogs were allowed the owners did the right thing by bagging anything their dogs left with supplied bags.

Fabulous beach, c1.5 hours north of Sydney. Large curved bay, patrolled section, all the usual surf, sail board etc activities. Plus spectacular (colours, rock pools etc) and walkable rocks with great views from the point (also popular for fishing).

Great quiet beach with amazing rock formations to explore. Not a rough beach so the kids can play safely in this protective cove. Highly recommended visit.

This is a great little beach. Has food at the SLSC but only a small playground. It's not as busy as Umina/Precinct Park area.
