Salonika Beach

Hay Point, Mackay Area

Located North of Sarina, delightful Salonika Beach is the destination for many holiday makers and Sarina residents.

Salonika Beach is a tropical haven for visitors to Hay Point. The two kilometre stretch of sandy beach is ideal for swimming and relaxation. Gaze out toward Victor Island, only one kilometre offshore. The natural preservation of the area means wildlife experiences are easy to come by, with black cockatoos, sea eagles and bush turkeys often seen. Nearby wetlands provide unique bird-watching opportunities.

A playground and picnic tables can be found parallel to the beach.

Unit accommodation is available at the southern end of Salonika Beach, which also has a licensed restaurant. At Salonika Beach there are rare sightings of loggerhead turtles, echidnas and on occasion, seasonal whales and dolphins.

Salonika also gives you easy access to Hay Point and Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal complex, which is the largest coal export facility in the Southern Hemisphere, with a total capacity of over 50 million tonnes per annum. All of this can be seen from a nearby viewing platform.
