First and foremost, do not swim here - warning signs are in place for a reason. Even while fishing the sweep and rip in knee height water almost had me on my backside more than once and I've been fishing surf beaches since I was 7.

Access is rather difficult down around 220 steps. Plenty of soft sand down the bottom before you hit the firm stuff but well worth the trek.

Fishing is either pure surf or rock based - please take care and never turn your back on the water, especially on the rocks. Poorly defined structure but easy to find with a few casts. Was constrained by time but would have loved to have a line out for tailor - settled for plenty of smaller swallowtail dart instead.

I would imagine this beach would be pretty well protected from howling westerlies in Winter. Plenty of kangaroos on the way back out. You're likely to be either the only person on the beach or one of no more than five.

Attracts less people than the beaches nearby so there's a good chance you will have most of it too yourself. Very scenic and relaxed spot.

Just gorgeous natural environment with wild beaches, kangaroos and native beauty. Easy to drive around and visit all the little bays tucked away

a short morning walk around Point Lookout and Frenchman's Beach on a stormy summer's day in Queensland.
After a good breakfast, it was a great way to work off the calories, blow the hair around and then shelter inside for coffee in-between rain showers.
Spectacular views!

All the beaches on Stradbroke were clear of rubbish and a pleasure to stroll particularly in the cool of late afternoon

Frenchman's Beach offers the opportunity to imagine you are on a desert island with wooded cliffs and a sheltered white sand beach worlds away from mainstream society. All this by leaving the cafes and bars of point Lookout and walking down a steep wooden stairway to access a perfect beach where it is rare to see more than two other couples/groups

All of the beaches in North Stradbroke are pretty amazing. I can't really say anything negative about it. Just make sure to not stay in the sun too long and wear tons of sunblock. There's not much shade and its easy to get sunburn on the walks here. Also the sand is super fine so expect it to be in everything you own when you get home lol.

It is quite a walk down steps to get down to Frenchman's Beach. We actually walked down via the whale watching track and then along the beach. The views are excellent and the sand was so white and clean. Great beach but remember you have to walk up again.

The walk down to Frenchman's beach is worth it because it is a great fishing spot. I went to the rock pool area on the left as you hit the sand. I was on my own so no worries about getting tangled up with other fishers.
