Picnics and sundowners at Alexandra Headland
Head out the door of your apartment, luxe beach house or cabin and in just a few minutes you’ll be sinking your toes in the sand or strolling on the many paths that weave along the coastline - don’t be surprised if you’re greeted with a friendly smile and G’day from the locals.
Cool off with a dip in the pristine ocean, which is patrolled year round by the legends at the Alexandra Headland Surf Lifesaving Club, then throw a towel down and score a front row seat as local surfers seek out that magic point break where they can ride a perfect barrel.
