Area Info for your upcoming St Andrews Beach Holiday in Go Coastal’s Golf Apartments, Beachside Accommodation, and Houses for the Whole Family
St Andrews is positioned on the Ocean side of the Peninsula, between Rye and Gunnamatta. A small hamlet with boundless natural beauty, St Andrews is home to some of the best Golf Greens in Australia, including St Andrews Beach Golf Course – an 18-hole course designed by world renowned course architect, Tom Doak. Go Coastal Holidays offers accommodation situated right on the cusp of its rolling terrain, literally step out onto the back deck of our St Andrews Beach Appartments and take in the manicured greens and native surrounds of the course.
If you like long walks on the beach, St. Andrews Beach is your destination. From St. Andrews Beach carpark at the end of Paradise Dr, you can access the beach and walk 40 minutes in either direction before being cut off by coves and jutting cliffs. Please always check the tides before venturing out along the ocean beaches as many sections of beach become too narrow to pass during mid-high tide.
