Here for a weekend away with friends. Beautiful beach it also helped that it was super hot day and swimming was the solution to keeping cool. This whole area just spectacular. I highly recommend a drive from Melbourne up the great ocean Rd.

A lovely swimming beach. A great Shopping strip nearby and excellent Cafes for lunch and dinner. Excellent facilities nearby and good for boogie boarding and surfing. A Skate board facility is also nearby.
