Your View: Port Victoria beach use

SECOND Beach and the other beaches to the south of Port Victoria represent excellent and unique walking opportunities.

However, these opportunities are losing their attraction due to the behaviour of those who view the beach as a pathway for more adventurous activities.

Last week I spoke to interstate visitors while walking on Second Beach. They were high in praise of its tranquility and beauty.

On Saturday of the same week I walked again. But this time the tranquility was quite shattered. At the first cutting at the southern end of the beach shots could be heard coming from behind the first sandhills and some minutes later one was joined on the beach by five motorbikes being ridden at considerable speed.

While I have no objection to people driving onto the beach in an appropriate manner, I really do wonder why it is people can use these beaches in a manner not permitted elsewhere?
