Best times to visit

Autumn

With a greater chance of cloud cover during autumn, it's a great time of year to take some fantastic photographs of the historic sites of Stockton Beach.

Summer

With temperatures averaging in the high twenties and a campground right near the beach, sleep in the comfort of your tent accompanied by the sounds of nearby crashing waves.

Winter

A cooler temperature and more turbulent ocean, it makes Stockton a quieter time to take a stroll down the beach.
