To Do


The stunning and protected bay at Pearl Beach with its long sandy beach is a great swimming location for everyone. The salt water pool set into the rock face allows you to swim laps at your leisure, or have the peace of mind that the children are in a safe area.

Tennis and Bowls

Two courts and a bowling green are available for hire in the Opal Close Reserve. Everything needed for a game of bowls is supplied. Casual booking rate is approximately $10.00 per hour.

Stunning walks are abundant throughout the National Park. For an energetic walk, head to the waterfall or hike through the National Park to Patonga. For those who like to meander, the Arboretum is at the end of Crystal Avenue and is only a few minutes walk from our front door. The local bushwalking group, ‘Plodders’, meet regularly in Pearl Beach.

Pearl Beach Yoga

Pearl Beach Yoga is based on a style that draws its roots from the ancient teachings of Hatha yoga. It focuses on bringing the body, mind, and spirit into balance, via a dynamic sequence of physical postures, controlled use of the breath, and an underlying spiritual philosophy that creates a link between the practice of yoga on the mat, and the practice of yoga in daily life. There are currently 3 classes a week held in the Pearl Beach Community Hall, an easy 4 minute walk from Wildwood. Visit

Cafes and Restaurants

A licensed restaurant, a great cafe and a well stocked general store are all located on the beach front.
