Lugger Bay (787) forms the southern end of the Mission Beach system. It is a 1.5 km long bay tucked in the shelter of Tam O’Shanter Point. It initially faces east, but curves right around to finally face due north. It is a protected, low energy beach consisting of a narrow high tide beach fronted by low tide sand flats that widen to 300 m in the southern corner. The beach is backed by a low, densely vegetated foredune, then cleared farm land, with the small Mile Creek exiting in the southern corner. A footbridge, part of the Kennedy Track, crosses the creek and provides access to Tam O’Shanter Point.

Swimming

This is a relatively safe beach, as waves are usually very low to calm and rips absent. However, you can only swim at high tide as the sand flats are exposed at low tide.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

Only at high tide and in the creek.

General

A lovely, curving beach; part of the Kennedy Track and well worth the walk.
