Tugun and Bilinga both offer clean sandy beaches of a quality that easily rival those further north, without the crowds.
Shaded picnic and barbecue facilities sit adjacent to the beach, with children’s playgrounds to entertain the kids.
Surfers will find plenty of breaks on the open beaches, without the lineups or hassles found at other breaks.
Fish the beach for dart and bream during the day or at night, with the cooler months bringing more fish. South at Bilinga, fish the rocky outcrops with good results.
Stroll south along the beach, enjoying a break from the crowds, and follow the walkway to enjoy the shade provided by the overhanging trees.
