Grab a happy hour beer from the Fishing Club, check out the sunset over the ocean and order the most delicious fish and chips which will be delivered to your picnic table, cheap and tasty on the beach.

Went here in May 2014. Was ok but way over priced. Went with my family and got a couple of meals but it just wasn't enough. Think it was more the location you pay for rather than the food. Not too sure I'd go back

Great food & views, super fresh fish and beautiful scenery, but it does get dark early and quickly so be prepared for that.
