“Lovely sandy beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We braved the unseasonally chilly breeze and spent a whole day at the beach with family and friends building sandcastles, swimming and flying kites.
We had been warned that there would be long queues for the car park but were pleasantly surprised to find that there weren't any at 10.30am. The beach has plenty of space to spread out and the children could play games without disturbing others.
There is a cafe at the end of the car park which is handy for a hot drink but I would pack a picnic and stay all day.
Be warned - I still got sunburned even though the sun was only out intermittently and it was chilly at times. The sand also gets into everything as it is whipped up by the breeze - a windbreaker is a must.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

This beach is clean with crystal clear water. The shallow pools are excellent for young children. The lifeguards are the best I have ever seen. The food is a bit pricey but great. We love this beach and travel a great distance just to get here.

“Dog friendly beach - shame about the price of the parking.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

East Head is dog friendly and is a lovely hour walk around the perimeter. Our dogs love the sand and paddling in the sea. There is also a café onsite which is average serving sandwiches, burgers and jacket potatoes (get in early as they only cook a small number per day so run out by about 12 o' clock)

One very negative point is the price of the parking which is ridiculous. We restrict visiting the beach once per holiday due to the price of the parking. We would love to visit more if the price was reasonable.
