Where is it: Sylvan Beach Esplanade, Bellara
Why we love it: Nice sand and gently sloping beaches make the water irresistible for our little kids! We love the parks as well!
Tell me more: Sylvan Beach runs along the western side of Bribie Island, separated from Sandstone Point on the mainland by the Pumicestone Passage. There are a number of parks spread along the beach and are really easily access from the esplanade. We visited a couple of parks - the Pirates Only Park and Crest Park - for a quick play and a splash! Only a short 20 metre walk from the parking areas (Pirates Only Park has off-street parking) and you will be at the picnic tables and playgrounds. The beach areas adjacent to both parks are easy to get to and both have shallow entries into the water - great for the little kids! Be aware that the parks are unfenced so you will have to keep an eye on the little guys! We had heaps of fun alternating between playground and beach, and we loved the fact that both parks have heaps of trees and shade!
Amenities: Toilets, picnic areas and drinking water available - there are also some cafes and shops nearby! 👍👍👍
Parking: Parking along the esplanade and some off street parking as well! 👍👍👍
Access: So easy to access, and only a short walk to the water! 👍👍👍👍
Best for: The playgrounds and calm water make this a great option for young families! 👍👍👍👍
Summary: A really nice option for a quiet and relaxing day by the water! Plenty of shady trees and easy access are big pluses! 👍👍👍
Hints: Keep an eye on the tides! At high tide the water might be a little deep for the little guys!
