I guess I'd just say that folks should take the time to talk with people and get a feel for their challenges and what not before shooting them down in a public forum. My first interaction with the manager, Ray, related to an incredibly arrogant...More

Lovely little beach with white sand and clear blue sea. Great rock pools. Very good food in beach restaurant although quite high prices. Parking can be tricky as not many spaces.
