Iluka Beach


Featuring a small beach gazebo at one end of the beach and a boardwalk at the other, this small but idyllic location is popular for families looking for a sheltered stretch of beach to have a picnic or a dip in the crystal clear waters in this pristine part of Marmion Marine Park. If the kids are feeling more adventurous, perhaps visit the lookout and Iluka Foreshore Park with playground with toilet and BBQ facilities only a short walk away.

Iluka Beach is connected to the extensive and beautiful coastal footpath meandering along the coastline, providing further opportunity to enjoy this region by taking a nice stroll while enjoying the stunning views it offers.
