Amazing surf beach. The times that I have been there the waves have been not for the faint hearted. Great place however to watch the surfers catch waves and whales pass by.

A lot of people walk their dogs on the foot path adjacent to the beach. Highly popular. However dogs are not allowed on this beach. There is a designated dog beach some 10 minutes away (Horseshoe Beach) next to Nobby's Beach.
