The boardwalk to the viweing platform is an easy walk and wheelchair accessible. The view is stunning. No whales sighted during our visit this time but have previously seen them here. Lots of stairs to gain access to the beach but a great walk once...More

With a two year old this was perfect for our little one to paddle in the water and play in the sand. Plenty of families with young children to keep each other entertained.

We visited Logan’s Beach on a sightseeing daytrip we planned with friends. Awesome views of the beautiful ocean! No whales but still an amazing location to spend some time viewing the power of the ocean!

We have seen Southern Right Whales before but from a boat. But this was amazing to be lucky enough to see adults and calves so close in to the shore is incredible. We had traveled over 16,800 kilometres to see them and were not disappointed....More

We visited in September and were delighted to spot a few whales basking. Logan's Beach is very picturesque even without the whales - a lovely spot for a stroll and to soak up the coastal atmosphere.

We were there to watch for whales. Unfortunately none could be seen at the time of our visit. However, there were quite a number of surfers waiting to catch some good waves. Other then that, there is nothing much to see there.
