Sapphire Coast Beaches

Take the kids to the beach & feel the sand between your toes!

The Sapphire Coast Beaches cover more than 400 kilometres of estuarine foreshore and individually there are more than 150 beaches to explore!.Here at South Coast Kids we think that spending our weekends discovering each one of them would be a pretty good way to spend a few years! Some of these beaches are so remote that they are only accessible after walking for days, (not sure we could guarantee an ice cream upon arrival).
Other beaches however are so easy to get to that you need to make sure you get there early to secure your spot in the sand.
Read on for a sampling of just some of these stunning beaches on the Sapphire Coast.

Happy Splashing!
