5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Brilliant gardens and paths to walk. What a great view and exceptional walking trails. Nice restaurants along the way and even a swimming pool incorporated into the Strand.

“A great place to walk the dog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

When travelling with your pet it can be difficult to find places that are both interesting and pet friendly. The Strand is both. My daughter (aged 12), my dog and I enjoyed over an hour of walking and watching along The Strand. There are plently of cafe's and galaterios, but there were also some great free attractions, many playgrounds (including one with water shooting out everywhere) an exercise route, toilets and changerooms, a rock pool, park benches and tables, loads of little grassy spots to rest ... this place has everything!

“Coffee by the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Went for a walk along the Strand, its pretty, few cafes, small amount of shops and a Pub also the jetty for Magnetic Island. Loved walking along the board walk, stopped at The Coffee club for a quick cup of tea. Very relaxing....
