I am a West girl and this beach is typical of a WEST beach, wild and untamed. Beautiful and real. Bea careful when you swim.

All the roads leading to this wonderful West Coast beach are good for cyclists, not too busy, a bit challenging in parts with the hills, but the spectacular views approaching Bethells beach make it all worth while. Downside is that there is no coffee shop at the end of the road, but there are good toilet facilities.

Don't swim here unless the lief guards are out as it can be unpredictable. But if you want to get the feel of a wild open beach close to the city this is the place to go. There is an amazing fresh water lake along the stream just as you come down the last bend before the beach. Follow the stream and then walk along the sand-hill heading towards the hills and you'll come across the lake. This is where they've made many TV series like Zena.
