You could sit and watch the surfers all day as they do battle with the elements in this tiny bay. It is not safe for swimming because of strong rip-tides but watch the surfers use the rip to their own advantage as they ride in on the (often) large waves. Walk the rocky shoreline and explore the many rock pools, but if you want to swim walk around the road to the nearby Princess Bay. Marvellous sea vistas are guaranteed from here in a winter storm.
