Beaches, Lake & Pools

Shellharbour North Beach 3 resize

You can choose from five stunning stretches of sand from Lake Illawarra in the north to the marvellous "Mystic's at Minnamurra.  If you are looking to catch a wave or two all our beaches are perfect, however surfers can’t go past “The Farm”–  a National Surfing Reserve located within Killalea State Park. Remember to stay safe and swim between the flags. 

Lake Illawarra provides a perfect place for a spot of fishing or the kids can swim safely without the waves.  The shores of Lake Illawarra are the ideal place for the family picnic.   

For information on beach patrol times visit Shellharbour City Council's website.  Beach wheelchairs are available for people with disabilities through the Shellharbour Surf Lifesaving Club, Warilla Surf Lifesaving Clubs and Shellharbour Beachside Tourist Park.

While out in the sun enjoying our beaches, lake or swimming pools remember to be sun smart and Slip, Slop, Slap.
