Hobie Beach, which is also the scene of the annual Splash Festival centred around Shark Rock Pier every Easter, is among the most sought-after beaches.
Pollok Beach farther south is also popular and you’ll frequently see windsurfers, surfers and other watersports enthusiasts in the area.
The entire beachfront promenade is also popular for walks – the walk from the pier to Something Good is popular.
The Boardwalk caters to all ages and has a casino for adults, with 700 slot machines and 20 gaming tables. There’s an entertainment centre, mini-golf and go-karting as well as a variety of eating establishments and shops in the complex.
Entertainment is always on offer, either at the Boardwalk amphitheatre or at the hotel’s convention centre.
Golf enthusiasts can head to the Humewood golf course while Bayworld and the museum complex just opposite Humewood Beach make a fun weekend or school holiday visit.
