We heard this place is great for kite flying. There wasn't any kites in sight when we visited as we came on a rainy afternoon. The rocks by the beach makes it a beautiful shot. If you are a photographer, this will make one great picture.

Having visited Trinity Beach shortly before Yorkey's beach did not cut it. Nothing very special about it at all.

Yorkeys Knob now has a magnificent walkway from the northern end to the southern entrance to the beach. With great barbecue areas, improved toilet facilities and a playpark for the kids, it really is a very special place to go for a nice shaded walk, along the esplanade or some family time.

Love walking the YK beach. Always a few locals but never crowds. Nice little cafe in one of the apartment buildings thats open early if you want a coffee during your morning walk.

Beautiful beach to go for a walk on. Take the dogs for a walk. Good kitesurfing when the wind is right.

Welcomed by the Yorkey's Knob Boat Club crew on entering the club and then on the deck at the bistro, as attending a birthday celebration, there was 2 tables of 10 persons, staff accommodating with water on the tables on arrival and asked for guests to use table number and do own lunch booking (so can pay for own meal,...

Terrible tasteless food and expensive. Service is not to bad . But complaints fell on deaf ears. Management do not care. Could not give a damm. We wont be going back unless we hear that new owners are in place. Such a shame for a very nice location.
