Had no idea that this place even existed until we were out on a road trip and we stumbled across it. WOW!!!! What a find. So peaceful, so unspoilt and so beautiful. A must visit. Swimming, beaching and plenty of caves and rocks to clamber...More

Beautiful beach and amazing walks. A good range to choose from, with varying degrees of difficulty and different lengths. At low tide a lovely walk to and from Omaha Beach too (easily accessible two hours either side of low tide).
This place was absolutely stunning. We did the short walk EcoWalk and it gave us plenty of variety - bush, ferns, creek, old stand trees as well as beach, Other walks looked good but we have limited time
