This is a beautiful beach with a flat sandy section and a rocky section. There's no shark nets so don't venture too deep in the water. There are chalets that looks nice and are very affordable considering where they are situated, but I can't comment...More

Silaka is always on our list. Pick a day when the North Easter is blowing, and it is very sheltered from that wind. Explore rock pools just watch the high tide if it is spring tides.

The walks aren't anything special but they're along a lovely part of the coastline. We walked up one of the big hills at the west end of the beach which gave nice views up a good 200m climb.

This is a really beautiful, quiet place. We had the beach to ourselves. It is safe, the chalets are clean. Everything is catered for, one just has to bring coal along.

Wow. Is the best description of this place. The point I would like to make when making comparisons is you can not compare a place that you pay 5 time more. Again I say beautiful place and value for money. Going back definitely.
