Armstrong Beach (1148) is the only settlement on the coast between Sarina and Green Hill, 40 km to the south. Even so, this is only a small beachfront community, located 7 km east of Sarina, with about fifty holiday houses, a store and a caravan park. The 3.6 km long beach lies 4 km inside Llewellyn Bay and faces east toward the 5 km wide bay mouth, that extends from Freshwater Point to Allom Point. The beach is bordered by the rocks and rising land of the Freshwater Point peninsula in the north, with a small creek crossing the beach where it meets the rocks, and a small rock outcrop in the south. The main settlement is along the southern kilometre of the beach, although the entire beachfront is beginning to develop. The beach receives low waves and consists of a low gradient high tide beach, fronted by fine sand to muddy tidal flats that extend up to 2 km off the northern end of the beach.
These are relatively safe and usually calm beaches (1148-1149) that can only be used at high tide when the tidal flats are covered.
Most residents either launch their boats from the creek at high tide to fish the creek and bay, or fish the creek from the shore.
A quiet, though accessible little settlement, that is gradually increasing in population and popularity.Read less
