This quaint little bay has some of the best surf in the world. Perfect for surfers and photographers as the surfers are no more than 30m from the shore. Fisherman use the pier and regularly sizable fish. Spier fisherman regard this as paradise.

I've always heard about this bay but never been there. What a gem. It was winter but the surfers were all out. I swam in the beautiful tidal pool, cold but great. A truly special place.
