You can read any of my posts, all honest answers. Best sandy beach is on Karragarra Island, (probably dearest island to buy on, personally nothing against Karra but I don't know why that is the case?) not a long walk, but you can swim or put your feet in the sand and water and sit and look out at the lovely views and boats moored in the channel between Karra, Macleay and Lamb. After all these are smallish islands, particularly Karra and Lamb, where people have been allowed to build to the waterline, so no "long walks" like on the Gold Coast or where ever. Also there is "Sandy Beach" on southern end of Russell and a sandy beach in the middle of Macleay on the western side, but also lots of mangrove areas and sand that mangroves flourish in, so darker sand. An idea of the community here: I see lots of people on the passenger ferries, talking to lots of people who just happen to be on the same ferry, I don't see that happening on any public transport, which I take all the time, on the mainland?! It is a community out here. People say hello to each other in the street or when passing and at the local shops etc. I think you could do worse. Been here for 7.5 years, and counting. Hope that is honest enough for you. See u soon
