We've stayed a few times at Ballina Beach Village. It's a great location, sites are good and the staff are always friendly and helpful. One of the things we like about it the most is how close it is to the beach and listening to the waves crashing into the beach overnight. the canteen makes pretty good food and coffee... More

Ballina beach village has become our regular beach holiday destination because of its great dog friendly cabins. Lots of caravan parks are 'dog friendly' but still won't allow pets in the cabins with you, but ballina beach village does! Lovely people. Clean, fresh, inviting cabins and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. There is a great dog beach 10km down the road... More

This was great accommodation and had wonderful facilities. Too bad we had only one night here as I could stay for at least a week. Cabins had all the comforts required for a pleasant stay. Too bad we missed out on the cafe as the menu looked great.

We spent 4 glorious days this Easter at Ballina Beach Village. For first time caravaners this could have been a daunting outing but the sites here are spacious and very easy to navigate.
