I follow this instagram site, and it has lots of images of Russell Island https://instagram.com/russellisland.qld/ There are beaches at Sandy point and next to High st Jetty (This beach will be possibly relocated as part of the Russell Island Ferry Terminal upgrade by State government now underway)
Australians are a hard mob to please! Obviously most people commenting here have not traveled far in their life to see how 'the real world' lives out there. The Bay Islands are bloody beautiful. Great fishing, friendly locals, are the shops you need. There's a ton of hidden beaches scattered all around the islands, so put down ya soy late and piss Bondi off, because the Bay Islands are the next big thing.

There are NO beaches apart from a very small man made one (with nets) right next to the ferry ramp. I wouldn't call it "nice" as the benches behind the beach often get filled up with undesirables and their alcohol sessions. Yep - there are lots of midges/mossies as the island is surrounded by mangroves/mud.
Why are people so negative about the islands, if you don't like here, then, don't come here/stay here, maybe you have never been here, just joining the band wagon. Let me know where you live and I will get on here and run it down also. Just go away, leave us alone and leave us to living on what WE think is paradise. My mother would always say, "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" If we were all the same the world would be bloody boring!
What are the beaches like in the islands? All four.
there is a reason why amity point in the movie 'jaws' was named after amity point, stradbroke island. can't remember why, but i think it had something to do with sharks. and the last girl to get taken at amity point (stradbroke island), in waist deep water, was about 5 years ago. russel is only a fin drop away.
