This charming seaside village is home to one of the largest sand dune fields in the Southern Hemisphere.

Typical of the wild, west coast, the rugged landscape of this beach is beautiful, and offers good swimming, fishing, walking and more. Get some fish n’ chips at the local store and picnic on the beach while watching the sunset. With a mix of permanent residents and holiday homes, this community is friendly and welcoming. The local holiday park(opens in new window) is award winning, and makes for a relaxed seaside getaway.
