Agnes Water Beach stretches for kilometres between the town of Agnes Water and the headland of 1770. It is so relaxing to walk during sunset or to swim in the patrolled area anytime of the day. A stunning part of the Queensland coastline.

The main beach was patrolled (9am-5pm) when we were there (school holidays) so you can swim between the flags. It’s a good spot to introduce kids to boogie boarding. The sand is gold and clean - and the dunes have a few shady trees. There’s...More
