Fantastic dandy beach with lagoon to wade through. Lifeguards attend. Read the sea conditions before bathing as there can be a strong current. Really nice place to sun bathe.

Visiting North Stradbroke Island was the highlight of my Queensland trip. Cylinder Beach had crystal clear light blue water. There was a variety of different fish present at the beach. I highly recommend visiting this beach.
