Beaches on Thesen Island


The three community beaches of Thesen Islands are the Main Beach on Plantation Island, the Cove on Leeward Island and Heritage Bay on Avocet Island. These man-made beaches were constructed using transplanted river sand which had caused river mouth silting in nearby areas. The dredged excess sand was transported by the truckload to create the calm, sheltered beaches of Thesen Islands.

Motorised water craft are restricted from the beach precincts. This allows children in particular to swim and paddle in safety. What better way to spend a few lazy summer hours with a good book, on a comfortable lounger under a large umbrella? If you're feeling more active, enjoy a game of beach bats or beach volleyball. These are surprisingly large beaches so there's plenty of room.

The Main Beach in particular is ideal for informal summer evening gatherings. There's a permanent barbecue unit on a brick plinth in the sand and since it's just across the road from the clubhouse, you can easily use the kitchen to facilitate your beach party catering requirements

Many of the houses have small, private beaches directly beneath the entertainment decks.
