Woodgate Beach is a haven for those seeking a tranquil beach holiday... whether your idea of the perfect holiday is relaxing on the beach or partaking in various water activities.

  • Woodgate has a long white sandy beach stretching for 16 kilometres with plenty of She-Oak trees providing shade for relaxing in a deck chair.
