A man made beach looks good but is closed for the late months of the year. No waves so more of a bay rather than a beach.

Nice, sandy beach next to clear waters with some sun beds to rent, but better to bring own towel. There’s not too much shade and sun can be relentless, so be ready and bring a lot of sun block. Lifeguards on duty are quite strict...More

We had just about 2 hours to shoot photos on the beach. So we had our outfits and tripods ready! Nearby parking is available the woman manning it was super polite! We had a lot of fun taking photos on this beautiful beach!

I love this beach for its natural beauty! It is accessible within the Ocean Expo Park. Enjoyed the scenery and it’s powder white sand. It gives a tranquil and peaceful feeling. I marvelled at God’s creation!
