Get to Nelson around 6 in the morning only a few dogs and people sometimes non. Watch the sun come up and the dolphins swim by and even take a morning dip. This is the best walking beach especially at low tide. Also a great family day time beach.

We were staying in a holiday rental near Nelson Beach. I went for a walk in the early mornings and just loved the view over the bay. The sand is white and fine. The dogs and their owners were having a great time on the beach. There is a park nearby which is called Plantation Point Park which is a... More

This is a pristine holiday area boasts many beaches, all offering perfection,but for me i liked this white sanded beach with absolutely clear water. Its a cosy stretch of sand,only one km long with calm water and some excellent waves when the surf's up. Amenities are all here and dogs allowed off the leash between 4 pm and 8 am.... More

I spoil myself a couple of days a week by visiting Nelson Beach. Set yourself down on soft white sand, some days the navy are doing their exercises. It good to watch the frigates and helicopters in the distance. Plus I am lucky to spot a pod of dolphins just about every time I visit. Through the week the beach... More

Our nearest beach, used by locals to walk their dogs. Sounds bad? No, the locals are friendly, if you are, and the dogs are very well-behaved. There's loads of wildlife and stunning sunrises and sunsets.

We stayed a short distance from this beach. Was fun watching all the dogs run about and swim in the evening. Good parking, grassy area nearby for picnics.

Our dog loved this beach! It's off leash for dogs after 4pm and it's great to have a run around up and down the awesome sand with the dog! The water was clean and the waves were small enough to have a safe swim in.
