    Love all the sunning places around here. On concrete for those ready to dive into the water or on the sandy beach for those with minis. Swimming pool is quite nice too! Couldn't go wrong here.

    Well known as a good snorkeling beach, here is a special secret insight - there is a great big old groper fish and some smaller ones about half way out. Mind your fingers! Be nice to him/her...

    Some of the best snorkelling so close to home. You got options of sand and no sand if you want. Great day out - do some laps of the 'big' pool

    Great beach especially if you don't want to spend too much time looking for parking. Oh and it's free too!

    There's a lot of space to lie out in not directly on the sand. Good if you want to avoid bringing beach home with you

    Beach with rocks and no sand, you may like it if you're not a fan of beaches with sand

    Not as packed as Bondi or Bronte, easier to find parking spots. You can also walk to Gordon's bay👍

    Not much sand for those who doesn't like Sandy beaches. But rocks may hurt when waves get strong!

    Sitting on the concrete sides avoids getting sand in your bits.

    Kiosk. Loooooooong long wait for coffee. Pretty average coffee too.

    Bring some munchies with you cause the kiosk is definitely over-priced
