Very cool gold sand beach! Amazing view and not very many people. Loved this beach, spent half a day there with cool restaurants and shops along.

Hard to find but short and with an amazing lookout, even better when high tide.

Short walk (15-20min one way), and the lookout above all the houses and out to the sea is AWESOME - go for it.

Few hidden beaches accessible from boat are also there. Great fishing spots there. I have seen few Manta rays there also!

Arrived at 8am, backed up to the beach, settled down to Bacon Butties looking out over the Bay. Absolutely Beautiful. A little crowded with two other people on the Beach :-) The walks are very peaceful. You wouldn't want to pan for gold on that beach.
