There are several golf courses within the local area, a swimming pool with it’s own wave machine, leisure facilities and highly acclaimed restaurants, bars and shops. The coastal region also provides numerous walkways, coastal paths and opportunities for surfers, body boards and snorkelers alike. Visitors are welcome to roam the park, enjoy the scenery by the lake and stream or simply relax at the water’s edge, watching out for the local heron swooping in to pinch the fish.
