Great beach with very few people all year round. Great for watching whales swim past, dolphins playing and waiting for the turtle nests to hatch.

This is our favourite beach on the Coast. No crowds, lovely clean water, proximity to great places to eat and of course located in beautiful Marcoola

Great beach. Nice and quiet. Excellent swim spot however the airport is extremely close so it can be quite noisy during the day.
