Avolon Beach is great beach to check out if your already heading to Palm beach. You could stop along the way, check out one of the cafes or just relax on the beach.

Golden sands protected by headlands to the north and south. Family friendly with a rock pool at the south end. Popular board riding breaks with the north end protected from nor-easters. No storm water runoff at this beach makes it cleaner after rainy weather
