This beach is situated alongside a blind river month which closes and forms a safe lagoon out of rainy season. The beach is safe, clean and ideal for children. It is accessible by its own access road and is adjacent to a quiet residential suburb

The beach and the cliff paths are extremely well kept, clean and unspoilt. I love going there to just chill and watch all the seagulls swooping into the sea.

Beautiful, well tended, safe beach for all. Great place to have an early morning walk to start the day - or end it with a sun-downer at Dutchies beach bar!

With lawn to spread your picnic out on if you are not fond of sand everywhere and shower cubicles for washing the salt water off this beach offers so much more than most. Awesome waves for boogie board learners and life guards always on duty in season makes for a safe experience with peace of mind for the parents.

Really enjoyed the secluded bay, lots of grass area to sit if you prefer rather than the sand, plenty of rocks to sit by. Very clean and peaceful.

It was great to have a day on the beach after travelling for a few days along the garden route. Loungers and umbrellas can be hired (Rand 260 a day for two of each) and Dutchies restaurant is just a short walk away for lunch or you can visit their sushi bar which is open during the summer.
