Considering the number of turtles that come to this beach to lay their eggs, I expected a much longer beach. It is a fairly isolated area and the walk to the beach is mostly via boardwalks. Worth seeing especially between November and February.

This would have to be the best place to watch turtles come ashore to lay their eggs and watch them hatch later and scramble to the ocean to begin their life, it makes you appreciate the wonders that we have and need to protect.

We had booked about a month in advance for hatching season and were very well rewarded. The night time viewing does have limited numbers.

They start on 7 and if you are not there in time if you are the first group you may be missed, when I was there people were arriving later on etc, but I would try and be there as close to 7 as possible.
