Stokes Bay Reviews

Great place shame about storm outlet

Nov 17th 2023

Great place in summer for family activities. You can also hire Sups or kayaks. Sadly during winter storm outlets spoil the wild swimming for many.

Beautiful scenery. Great to go with family and friends for long walks along the beach.
