Natural Feature
“Great beach and very picturesque due to its half moon Bay shape. Only just over 1 hour drive to get here from the city centre. Food and drinks can be purchased here along with bbq facilities at reasonable prices. Best to stop off at the new market to purchase meat and fish before heading down there. There is surfing to be got there, but only on the right days due to wind currents. Do be very careful of the water currents in the centre of the beach areas as they can pull you out to the sea. Be very vigilant of your children when they are playing in the water. If you and your family or friends are interested in a day out to Nactobon Then message Cheryl before you arrive and she can do all the organising for you.... ”
