  • Lovely beach. It was very busy when we went but it is such a long beach it did not feel overcrowded. There is plenty of parking and clean public toilets.  more »
  • What a lovely place to visit. The beach was quite busy when we were there with surfers. If you like to sit and watch the waves and surfers this is a great place to be. The main town is like any other....  more »
  • It was lovely indeed. I was in a nice boutique & made a purchase. Staff member very pleasant at the Woolen Mills. We had a meal at Kenny's bar & Restaurant, 5 stars I must say & reasonably priced too. We really enjoyed our visit.
  • Surfers paradise, rough tide dashing against massive constructed boulder seafront wall. Plenty of convenient good facilities for visitors, including clean public toilets at the beach front. The town itself is lovely, full of quaint and quirky shops, restaurants and galleries. But extremely busy with humans, from everywhere, for the Covid times we are battling with right now!
