"Fabulous beach (great for surfers) - a car is necessary."

The Strand is Whale Beach’s premier waterfront street. It is right on the beautiful beach and all the properties here have wonderful ocean views. Several of the houses are brand news, and recently built, others are older and renovated – and some may be in original condition.

All but one of the blocks to the left of Surf Road are big – spanning all the way up to Whale Beach Rd – and all are just a skip across the road to the sand.
Whale Beach is busy in peak season and holidays with tourists from further afield visiting, but otherwise is often bypassed for the prestige of Palm Beach and is therefore quieter.

The properties on The Strand to the right of Surf Rd are further up the hill a bit and shrouded in greenery from The Strand itself.

Whale Beach has big shady pine trees, a children’s playground, a SLSC and an amenities block. On the corner of Surf Rd is a restaurant that has changed hands so many times in recent years it makes my head spin. I believe it has recently opened as ‘Ripples’. There used to be a kiosk section for light fare – but I am unsure if that is operating now.

Above the SLSC (and accessed by Whale Beach Rd) is ‘Moby’s Restaurant’ which offers great views. And on the corner of Whale Beach Rd and Surf Rd is the café Olive and Rose which does great breakfasts.
