If you're into diving or fancy a go, look out for 'Surfers Break' shop offering private/ group tuition by a team of local surfers who know the beautiful bay inside out. It's easy to find as you will see the guys playing footie on the beach or walking the boards along the shore line, next to the Hot Rock cafe.  Very good rates, good times on the surf and magical sunsets to die for after the sun goes down.....
