Illawong Beach

A serene and peaceful coastline awaits at Illawong Beach.

Avid fishermen cast from the beach or into the mangrove-lined creeks, a popular local fishing spot. Windsurfers can often be seen at this beach, with the view of nearby islands and the Hay Point Coal Terminal in the distance.
