Safer than most. Still has a village atmosphere. Largely young families, the elderly and a high concentration of owner occupiers.
It is safe, and family friendly area. Being surrounded by beaches, The Entrance Ocean Baths. Each weekend there is lots of family entertainment. Tourist town in peak holiday season, can become a bit crowded.
Like any area there are good and bad parts but majority of the area is very safe and friendly, does get busy in the summer months being a tourist town but lived here for over 10 years no issues.
