What a divine stop at Fingal beach. Winter beaches are the best. Waters a bit fresh but the sand in your tues and sun on your face against such a gorgeous beach...wow. One if Australia's hidden gems. Hope it stays hidden!

Beach is beautiful at present (March 2017) so full of sand. Great short walk up the headland. Rock pools and magnificent views from the top where the Lighthouse is.
