Just a stroll down the hill from the Beach Cabins. If folk have hill walking problems there is a good car park from which it is easy walking to the beach or along the reserve to the point.

Nicely kept headland with great views of the beach and beyond. Dog friendly. Easy parking and quite a level walk. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

It's a must do drive out to Short Point, the views are fabulous and sometimes you can see Whales. It's maintained beautifully for locals and tourists

Once you find the way here (not very easy) and park your car, it's a really nice walk in a peaceful area and the reward at the end of a short walk are great views to the south and east.

Great beach for kids to play in surf. Patrolled beach when we were there. A lagoon at back for those that don't like waves. Many kids playing here in blow up boats. Great toilet facilities and showers. Nice lookout over the ocean
