** UPDATE | BEACH VISITORS...
Sadly, our beaches will remain closed to the public this season due to COVID-19 and the subsequent social distancing restrictions.
The unique nature of our beaches - small coves, high tidal range, tunnel access and tidal pool, make it an almost impossible situation
for our small team to manage, especially due to the large numbers of people observed flocking to beaches nationwide.
Unfortunately we just don't feel we can safely manage to open at this time, it has been a difficult decision that we have not taken
lightly but we feel it is the responsible choice. There are many alternative larger beaches in the area to be enjoyed this season.

** UPDATE | WEDDING COUPLES...
We will be available for pre-arranged private wedding venue viewings from 2 Dec. Please email us >> to book an appointment.
