We stayed on the Esplanade an it is a busy road so expect noise. The beach side has a green belt of trees which block views for much of the road. There is a great walkway on the beach side for those morning walks. Beautiful

Went out for an early morning run and ended up on the Esplanade, the view was breathtaking. Brilliant for a relaxing stroll with places to stop off for refreshments.

After returning home from 3 months travelling around UK, we realise and appreciate our beautiful coastline. The fact that there is a 10 klm bike path linking the whole of the esplanade is a welcome addition

We rode bikes along the foreshore - easy riding for the somewhat inexperienced. Enabled one with mobility problems to access the historic jetty and the beautiful bay

This is a really nice walk early in the morning or at night. Very friendly people who like to say and maybe a chat a times. You have all lights all the way if you want to walk at night. There is toilets and clean and also benches to sit down on. Heaps of shops on the way.

We spent 4 nights in Hervey Bay and we had great weather the whole time, so it goes without saying that 3 out of the four evenings involved lovely stroll along the Esplanade after dinner. It was so nice and peaceful and there is a lovely path which is well lit. During the day after or during my walk i... More

Council has done a nice job with walking areas, toilets and making the beaches neat and tidy and accessible. The Esplanade is not vehicle friendly and is, in my opinion, quite dangerous with all the obstructions designed to slow traffic. Lots of shops and food places so quite nice if you are going to be in town for a few... More
