Mackay's Northern Beaches include the suburbs of Blacks Beach, Bucasia, Dolphin Heads, Eimeo and Shoal Point. Although they were once merely holiday destinations, these days they're popular residential suburbs where young families make the most of coastal living.
Blacks Beach is a small, family-oriented community so the natural recreational focus tends to be fixed firmly on the beach and water sports. Bucasia is located just a little north of Eimeo, at the start of a peninsula that ends at Shoal Point. The suburb has an interesting mix of established homes and new developments.
Dolphin Heads is home to cooling sea breezes, cliff-top homes and impressive capital growth. Entering Dolphin Heads via Ian Wood Dr, lavish hilltop residencies take in sensational coastal views.
Almost all of Eimeo is newly developed. Popular with owner-occupiers who desire a new home close to the beach, the suburb has attracted a great deal of attention from investors. Rental properties here are in very high demand. Perched high above sparkling waters, the Eimeo Pub is a local landmark well worth a visit.
Shoal Point is a quiet seaside suburb, with a natural environment that encourages wildlife such as possums and Rainbow Lorikeets. The beach has sensational views north to Cape Hillsborough and the Hibiscus Coast.
The Royal Sands Estate is located on the left of Shoal Point Rd and contains near-new homes. Although there are indications that future development may occur, presently there are just a handful of peaceful streets and two small parks with children's playgrounds. It's a perfect enclave for young families, investors and mature residents, as there are no busy through roads and the streets are all flat.
