“So far from the crazy world!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Well, there is no hotel and no poker machines. What a joy to behold a town that does not focus on mind numbing pass times! And why would you. It has the most amazing beach. It is "ninety miles" long lol - no surprise there, but you actually do feel it's overwhelming size. It was peaceful and we really felt "at one" with nature. Very revitalising. Birdlife OMG! Stars at night OMG! Kangaroos OMG! A Sea Lion on the beach OMG!
We stayed at "90 mile Beach House and Villas" which was awesome but we reviewed that separately. Golden beach is a lovely town and it felt like I was a kid again, you know, the classic "general store" , fish and chip shop and old school feel all round. We really loved it.

“Stunning beach and friendly locals”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Golden Beach is one of the lesser known attractions along 90 Mile Beach, but is well worth a visit, for the stunning beach, complete with surf fishermen at all times of day and the friendly locals in the tiny little town. There are two general stores, one larger, both selling take away food and expensive "essentials", a small cafe and an information centre/municipal hall. The mobile library visited as well, during the week, not really very useful for all the visitors from out of town. The main detraction during the week was the lack of garbage collections and no cleaning of the public toilets, piles of garbage and dirty amenities were not a good look over the busy summer holidays.

“A piece of secluded paradise”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We spent an afternoon on Golden Beach and pretty much had it to ourselves!

There is a shop selling fish and chips, ice creams and fishing bait, and that's about it!

Avoid the public loos however, they were pretty disgusting!

“Endless beach and the most beautiful shells I've ever seen”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

The beach goes forever in both directions. Strolling is a must to look at all the shapes, colors and sizes of the shells deposited on it. Too cold to swim in late May but lovely spot to listen to the waves and walk.
