lovely clean beach. Came with the family for a day out. This beach is super clean and it was fairly quiet. There was a good amount of people surfing and it definitely has the vibe of a surfers beach as there are cool food trucks and coffee shacks dotted about. If you want arcades and fun fairs then this isnt the beach for you. This is a more relaxing vibe.

Lovely beach, very clean and scenic with the dunes behind. Surf is a little rough but well observed by lifeguards when we were there who were reminding people to stay within the flags. Lacking a little bit food and drink wise but it was early April. Only option seemed to be lots of fried things or ice cream!

Great beach, dog friendly off season but can walk through the dunes during the summer. Good surf and lifeguards on duty. Had beach volleyball, parking and cafe. Is a small beach so can get busy if the weather is nice!

One of the best surfing beaches in the country.A word of caution though; it’s right next to a holiday camp and isn’t the widest beach so can get extremely busy in peak season. Pays to be an early riser!!

Lovely beach and definitely worth a visit. We went when it was a bit rainy so I imagine it's much nicer on a sunny day too. The beach is one of the softest sand I've seen/felt, it was great. There's a few cafes down there too plus toilets and outdoor shower areas. The car park we parked in was a bit confusing however as it didn't state that we should pay on arrival and rather said "pay before exiting the car park" which we interpreted as pay before leaving croyde Bay altogether so don't get caught out like we did by the poor signage.
