We have left the dune and its trees intact and planted indigenous ground cover plants to assist to help retain the sand dunes. Wooden pathways are being installed to provide a sustainable method of getting to and from the beach area. Currently our beach runs approximately 200 meters long, so finding a quiet place to be alone or with your partner is no problem at all. The sunset views from our beach are spectacular.
