You can’t help but feel in communion with the ocean when staying at this family-friendly holiday home, perched right on the sand dune of Boomerang Beach. Not only is this sleepy beachside town one of the best surf spots on the east coast of Australia, but the connection to the coastline is respected and honoured through keeping the home chemical and plastic free, and supporting the work of Sea Shepherd. With epic views, best enjoyed while you sip your happy hour tipples in one of the Adirondack chairs, and private access to the beach, you’ll likely spend your days with toes in the sand and return for a soak in one of the stone bathtubs before an evening of board games (and yes, even a guilt-free Netflix binge) beside the gas fireplace. You can keep your packing list light with boogie boards, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, a picnic basket and blanket, and even natural sunscreen provided.
