Take in the golden sands and sapphire waters of Pelican Beach from Pelican Beach Road lookout. Look to the north to see Pelican Point, a picturesque hotspot for beach fishing, or turn your gaze southwards for views of The Entrance.

As well as offering scenic views, the lookout also comes in handy for local surfers keen to check out the waves and those interested in whale watching. Once you’ve finished enjoying the view, why not put yourself in the picture and capture a photo.

On a sunny day, take a walk along Pelican Beach, dipping your toes in the water and looking for shells along the way. Nearby bushwalks include Red gum trail and Lillypilly loop trail.
