This beach is a hidden gem, gravel roads in but you won’t be disappointed. Beautiful beaches, white sand. The beaches are lovely and the water doesn’t drop off to fast. Worth a visit

This beach is a bit out of the beaten track, which is great. It's very peaceful and beatiful, with the islands in the distance. If lucky, you may catch a pod of daulphins either here or the beach up the road.

This curving white sandy beach is fabulous. It is long enough to satisfy even the most determined dog walker in the early morning and late afternoon. The water is crystal clear. Waves are not aggressive but enough to interest those with small boogie boards. Rocky headlands at either end and islands offshore, make it very scenic to look at. The best thing is the orientation of this bay which seems to somehow avoid the prevailing wind and remain quite sheltered in comparison to the neighbouring beaches. Never crowded but enough people interest for the people watchers. Definitely worth the travel to find.

It's a little off the beaten track. But that protects its charms. It was deserted when we arrived on a Tuesday afternoon in early March. It feels like a million dollars. And I imagine the nearby properties would be that and multiples thereof. Simply stunning and worth a visit, even via the gravel road.

Gravel road keeps away the hoi polloi. Not over populated, aside from the big mansions/baches that surround it. Good little walkway provides a great view of Beach and islands.
