Annenberg Community Beach House is a public beach facility where guests can change clothes and head to the volleyball courts, playground, beach, pool, or café. The Beach House is a community favourite for kids and adults alike, as it makes it easy to enjoy making Gold Coast memories.

    The splash pad and playground are perfect for letting the children run around while you soak up the sun and keep a watchful eye. The views from the beach are picture-perfect, just what you would imagine lounging on a Southern California beach.

    Highlights of Annenberg Community Beach House 

    The beach is the highlight of a day at the Annenberg Community Beach House and is one of the most pristine-looking in the area. Accessing the beach through the community beach house means there are umbrella and beach chair rentals available, along with all of the amenities of the beach house. 

    The water can be a bit chilly at times, but that doesn’t stop paddleboard enthusiasts from turning up with cold-weather gear, and you'll also find classes here to promote staying healthy and active, such as beach volleyball and yoga. Part of the beach house can be rented for private events.
