5 Australian Beaches to Explore this Easter

Blink. Blink. Blink.

Almost Easter and School Holidays?! How?!

If you, like us, love the ocean and the beach you might have already planned your Easter marine getaway. We thought we’d spice it up a bit and share our favourite beaches that cater different tastes. We of course recommend exploring them in one of our beautiful swimsuits. Better coverage and sun protection in style guaranteed!  

For Families
Greens Pool, Denmark, Western Australia

Beach view from afar and a ladder leading to it

Greens Pool is a magical white sand beach located in William Bay National Park and is 15 minutes drive from a town of Denmark.

As you approach this spot of paradise you will see the beauty of the Great Southern Ocean revealing itself to you. The beach is protected from the swells by large boulders that make the waters safe for swimming even for the little ones. The bottom goes down gradually which makes it easy to paddle in and out regardless of your swimming level.

Why you will love it

Unbelievable blue, turquoise and green will steal your heart.

For Adventure Seekers

Stradbroke Island, Queensland

This travel back in time is just a 30 minutes drive and a ferry ride away from Brisbane. Minjerribah, the original name for the Quandamooka people, is a true paradise for adventure lovers. Some of the favourite activities are:

  • Fishing in the Jumpinpin Channel, which was formed when the storm divided the island in half in the late 19th century. The fishing is at its best at low tide.
  • Go on perfect holiday snaps hunting. The island offers some of the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
  • Surfing pro or a newbie on the board? Straddie is a great place for surfing for both. 
  • How about kayaking with dolphins? You may even see humpback whales pass by for breeding in the warmer waters of the Great Barrier Reef.
Why you will love it

Relatively short way from Queensland’s capital Stradbroke Islands are a perfect winter holiday adventure spot.

For Lovebirds

Honeymoon Bay, Shoalhaven, New South Wales

If you’re planning to vacay in the Jervis Bay area, make sure you visit this little gem. Tucked away from the main coastline, this picturesque beach is about 45 minutes drive from Huskisson and just opposite its main beach. The water is crystal clear and if you take goggles and fins you may see a fish or two. Make sure to go there on the weekend as it may be closed over the weekdays due to Defence training. 

Why you will love it
Serene and peaceful.

For Paradise Seekers

Almonta Beach, South Australia

Longing for a paradise escape with whitest sand and bluest water? Almonta beach in Coffin Bay, South Australia will not disappoint you. It would suit you if you are exploring the Limestone coast by car or in a camper van as it is quite remote from the main destination of Adelaide. There is also a 50 minutes flight from the state's capital to Port Lincoln. This is generally a surfing beach and swimming is safest from Golden Island Lookout.

Why you will love it

You may be lucky to spot the locals: emus, kangaroos, goannas and an array of birds.

For Wine Lovers

Geelong, Victoria

Splashing in the morning and sipping for lunch? Travelling from a beach to a winery will be a breeze in Geelong, which is just a ferry ride or 1 hour drive from Melbourne CBD.

You can go for a surf at a famous Bells Beach or for a swim at patrolled family friendly  Ocean Grove Main beach, gaze into the ocean from Barwon Heads Bluff or stroll along historical Barwon Heads Foot Bridge. The choice is yours! Of course don’t forget about the second part of your journey - wineries! For such a little piece of land Geelong offers an amazingly large number of great wineries to choose from. Visit some and let us know which one you like the most! We couldn’t choose just one.

Why you will love it

Because wine not! ;) 

Whichever beach you choose, we are certain you will enjoy your time. Just remember the 5 S's rule to safely enjoy the sun:

SLIP (safety shirt or one of TANEMNOT beautiful pieces)

SLOP (at least SPF 30+ broad spectrum UVA sunscreen)

SLAP (put on a wide brimmed hat) 

SLIDE (quality sunglasses)

SHADE (seek whenever possible)
