If you come during the weekends and public holidays, there are one or two "mobile shops" that sell kites of different shapes and sizes. Your children will enjoy flying kites here as there is a designated area for kite flying.
Getting the kites up the air is easy especially during windy days. Bring your own kites if you come during the weekdays in case the "mobile-shops" are not open.
If you have the time to prepare, bring your own food and have picnic under the casuarina trees. There are benches and tables that you can use.
Alternatively, have a cup of coffee, coconut, noodles, nasi lemak and other local food at one of the many stalls here. Most of the stalls are opened during the peak season when it is a public holiday.
