"Our 1st time to Tannum on the Beach, but definitely not our last. The BEST place I have stayed EVER!! Not fancy but super clean, well maintained, comfortable and had every thing we needed. The pool was great (I hadn't been swimming in YEARS) There are undercover BBQ areas just opposite the Motel then just 50 meters to the beach. Life guards on duty, small rock pool area and shells galore. The staff are so friendly and and very helpful. See you soon Natalie and Co :)"
