“great beach”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Lovely sandy beach. There is a man made lagoon which is great to paddle in and allows safe access to deeper waters. Lots of creatures in rock pools to look for.

“Gorgeous beach”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

.....What a lovely beach to walk along , or just find a palm tree & a sunbed. It is really safe with no one hassling or disturbing your sunbathing. The most effort required, is just to turn over & toast the other side. You can stroll forever along this beach, calling in at a few beach bars along the way Oh! .......This is the life!!

“Safe beach with no hawkers. Great for morning strolls! Some decent, calm, shallow swimming and snorkeling areas.”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

A lovely beach for morning strolls on the sand or on the boardwalk. Much of the stretch has calm swimming conditions (usually) and several spots for lounging under a coconut tree!

We often stay at Coconut Court Beach hotel which has a sandy shoreline protected by a rocky breakwater. It has eroded over the years but it still works; though at high tides the inner water can get somewhat choppy with the waves just crashing over the rocks.

Some of the dislodged rocks have made for easily-accessible snorkeling area where you can see a nice array of fish, squid, urchins and other sea life.

Seasonally parts of the beach can get covered in seaweed which makes swimming not as pleasant.

It’s a safe beach. You won’t find hawkers or people begging or harassing you like in some other areas. The whole length of Hastings beach is dotted with hotels, restaurants and bars so you could easily spend a whole day enjoying the area while visited the beach.
