Beautiful spot, great waves for surfing! Don't let them rip you off on the lounge rental. Great beach for walking & shell collecting.

We took our 88 year old grandfather in a wheelchair to this beach and the local guys picked up the chair and brought him down so that he could enjoy a lobster lunch with rice and salad on the beach. We felt safe and the scenery was amazing. There are washrooms there and vendors to purchase from. The lunch was great and we didn't have any issues with getting sick from the food. They use reusable plates for the lunch so that they don't have much extra waste from each group that comes for lunch. Lobster lunch is about $15 USD which is reasonable considering you get a whole lobster. The beach itself is beautiful and I would have loved to stay there all day instead of just for a few hours. I would recommend taking a taxi here and making a day out of it.

Beautiful beach with gold sand.
Great for a long walk but also good for relaxation.
Crystal clear water.

We used to love this beach but it is not as wonderful as it used to be so we will likely not be using it as often anymore. They are deceptive in prices (our fish was charged by the pound but the menu does not advertise it that way) and now require mandatory 'donations' for parking.

Beautiful beach! Very busy on weekends with locals and tourists. Great food and drinks served on the beach.
Huge waves so difficult for swimming, but great for beginner surfers.
