“Fabulous for families”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Rockingham Beach is a great place for families. It is brilliant for children because the water is shallow for quite a distance, there is a long boardwalk - great for cycling or skating along. There is a lovely park overlooking the beach - with BBQ areas, lots of tree cover for shade, showers to wash off the sand after your swim, a toilet/shower block - which is clean and tidy.
There are numerous cafes and restaurants along with a smattering of shops.
Take a walk along the jetty with your fishing rod and bring home your dinner!!! and keep your eyes open you may see dolphins from the local pod - or even a Fairy penguin swimming around - on an adventure trip away from Penguin Island.
Overlooking the beach are a range of apartments.
The beach is white, the Indian Ocean is a fantastic blue and it is very photogenic.
The area does get busy during peak holiday times - so go early to find a good spot.

“Sunsets in our backyard, stunning.”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

From BBQ's to Dog Beach to calm water to snorling, scuba diving wrecks and watching dolphins go by, this beach has never failed to relax, calm and inspire. Anytime of the day or evening. Good for going for a run, fishing, swimming and generally floating about lazing in the sea. Great for boating, sailing and safe for jetskiing, playing and sunbaking, yeah this beach is home and it has it all - with attitude:)

Rockingham beach is nice and not too busy and the water is pristine most times. One of the best parts of Rockingham is the beach.

“Great spot!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a great spot to hang out if you just want to dip your feet in the Indian Ocean without getting bowled over by waves. It gets pretty busy during the hotter months and whenever there is a public event going on. Lovely spot for a picnic and fish and chips
