Did you know there are twenty thousand miles of shoreline in Australia? That means there are plenty of beaches in Australia to choose from for your next family vacation! Those beaches are perfect for swimming and relaxing in the sand. They are also the best place to go snorkeling, kayaking, and surfing. But which beach in Australia should you choose? Today, I am going to share the best beaches in Australia with you. You can choose the one that will be the best for your next family vacation in Australia.
Bells Beach is one of the best beaches in Australia for surfing. This beach is located on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, which is down the road from Torquay. The waves at this beach can be challenging. If they seem too rough, sit on the sand and watch the pros have a little fun. I recommend visiting during the month of April when the surfers all compete at the Rip Curl Pro Bell.
Bondi Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Australia. Since it is in Sydney, lots of the locals from the city spend their time there. When you are not surfing, you can take the Bondi to Congee Walk. This three-and-a-half-mile scenic walk will take you to other beaches and cliffs. You may find one that will be perfect for your next beach day.
The turquoise water of the ocean will be waiting for you when you arrive at Turquoise Bay. This beach in Australia is where you will find the Ningaloo Reef. Swimming and snorkeling are two of the most popular activities at this best beach in Australia.
I recommend snorkeling when the tide is high, so you can see lots of marine life.
So many of the beaches on the north coast of Australia get really crowded. If you want to spend a day without a ton of people, head south to Hyams Beach. This beach has the whitest sand in the world. Walk along the sandy shoreline to see if you can spot any dolphins out in the water. You may even spot a kangaroo or two while walking the trails within Jervis Bay Marine Park.
One of the best places to play beach volleyball is Cable Beach in Broome. The highlight of a visit to this Australian beach though is the sunset camel rides. Talk about a unique experience your family will talk about for years!
Whitehaven Beach is the best beach to visit in Australia when you want to be really close to the Great Barrier Reef. This beach is four miles long and offers views of Whitsunday Islands National Park. This beach is isolated and may be difficult to find. It is best to have straightforward directions before heading out in the morning.
This beach is a marine lovers’ paradise. There are coral gardens scattered around near the sandy beach. The Ningaloo Reef is only feet from the shoreline. It is possible to swim with whale sharks, manta rays, and humpback whales while visiting this beach. Just remember to give them their space and never approach, or touch, them.
One of the best places to watch the sunset in Australia is Cottesloe Beach in Perth. This is a family friendly beach. You can spend hours there swimming, snorkeling, and surfing. Nearby cafes are perfect when you all need to grab a bite to eat. Just make sure you stick around to watch the sun set low over the horizon. If you need to, arrive at this beach later in the day, so you are not too tired before the viewing of the sunset begins.
These are the best beaches in Australia. If you are still unsure of which one you want to visit, don’t worry! We will figure it out once we determine which area of Australia you want to see. Then I will make sure you have a couple of beach days to enjoy amongst all the other fun family adventures you will be having.
