We stopped in here on what we thought would be a nice quiet Thursday night, until were met by riot police on horse back and gangs of youths running amuck. Didn’t feel like a safe neighbourhood to be in. Perhaps it’s safer during the day?

A must visit when you wanna just spend some time admiring the nature.. there are good eating joints, take a walk to the beach or explore the Sunday market (opens 10am to 4pm) its just 20 mins by tram (route 96) from southern cross.

Walked the full length of the beach and pier yesterday. Loads of kite skiers which was great fun to watch. However it’s not a beach I would sunbathe on as there are dogs everywhere and I’m scared of dogs. Up on the esplanade you are...More

A long beach to walk along. Very open to the weather changes and if windy, Id stay away. There is a lovely cafe nearby which Id highly recommend having a coffee and cake at.
