Enjoyed a beautiful experience at Marcoola Beach where the air was fresh and pure. Sand snuggled my feet and the surf pounded luxuriously over my toes.

Great family beach. Life guards on duty, Surf Club and cafes nearby for coffee and meals, park with picnic and BBQ facilities. Great spot for a family day out. And Friday nights 4-7pm there are fabulous food markets.

But when I experienced just one night in this resort, I had that urge to come back again with more time to spend as there were many to see and enjoy.

A very clean beach with a lifeguard in attendance if you wish to swim. A lovely area for a quite walk and multiple access paths from the hotels along the way.

A popular little spot on a long beach. The lifeguard on duty was always friendly and alert. We enjoying walking and playing in the sand/water many days in a row :)

A lovely beach for walking and swimming. There is a life guard on duty and hard sand to walk on. The access paths are in good order.
