For a Queenslander, it is very unusual to stand on a beach and look up at snow capped mountains. The beach was clean and populated by many visitors. The water was cool and not a comfortable temperature for swimming.

This is a beautiful accessible white sand beach with what appears to be safe swimming. Great views and warm water by New Zealand standards.

This beach is just gorgeous! It is long with a gentle slope and sparkling white sands. It is popular in the summer but never seems to get super-crowded. It is very safe and suitable for kids of all ages.
