Tick it off the bucket list been and now done it. Surf was great but gentle when I hit the water at this well known location. A very picturesque location and a challenging break. No broken board so I that's a change !

Quite an impressive shoreline and rocky hillside. The beach is not as smooth and soft and quiet as other more southern beaches but that rough appearance is an exciting view. Another Surfer's preserve sign posted here for the Snapper Rocks and Kirra area.

Walking to and around snapper rocks is lovely. You see the wild side of the surf and also surfers. Lovely even on a cold or wet day just rug up and enjoy the sights. It is abit hilly so comfortable walking shoes are needed.

The scenery hear is great with rugged rocks and two pretty beaches and on the day we were there quite significant surf. A great place for a stroll but little parking most of the time.

If you enjoy walking then this is for you. Lovely wide concrete walkway hugging the coast past many gorgeous little bays.
