Snapper Rocks is a great place to sit and watch the world go by and if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time, you might even see a whale playing in the distance.

Beautiful paths to take your daily works along the coastline. The world surf comp was on when I visited so it was extremely busy. Lovely sandy beach to swim & enjoy the views.
