As you arrive at Freights Bay you're greeted by a panoramic view of the turquoise waters with white-capped waves rolling in. On the cliff top are a few shaded benches and a beautifully landscaped lawn where you can watch the waves and surfers. This is also a wonderful spot for enjoying dramatic tropical sunsets. To the right is the fishing village of Oistins which is famous for its fish-fry especially on Friday and Saturday nights.

To access the water and small beach, head down the steps.
