Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great little spot and a must visit when in Bowen, Qld.
There is a great walking track with stunning views, the water is turquoise blue and quite spectacular. There is a little cafe near the beach. Parking is a premium, not a lot of it at the beach, might need to park down from it and walk up. Well worth it though!

Gorgeous beach with its own cafe. Live music over the weekends to boot. A wonderful safe beach to splash about in or have a snorkel. Water was a little nippy but only because of the wind but very pleasant.

We wish we had more time in Bowen as we didn't realise how beautiful it was. If you are staying in Bowen, even overnight, make sure you stay at one of the resorts on the beach.

This bay is beautiful with crystal clear waters and the temp is perfect.

Third time we've visited this qauint little beach, love it! Most days has not been overly crowded, water clear & place clean! Plenty of shady spots to spend hours taking in the views and sunshine. *Bonus* cafe right at your fingertips and a lovely hill walk. Can spend a whole day there, just so relaxing & enjoyable!

Mid rated Queensland Beach. Shame there is no designated lagoon pool to be safe locally.
Small alcove / bay with rocks, boulders and tan sand.

We stopped here for a little rest. We wish we had organize a night around this area! Neat beautiful bay recovered and maintained by the local school. There other little beaches around too and they are all great spots for a dip! Just be aware there might not be flags.
