Amberton estate developer Stockland has created a fenced track with a crushed limestone surface that people can drive on to a car park, and then walk along a short path to the beach.
Resident Belinda Nimmo said the beach access pathway would allow her family to spend more time enjoying their coastal location.
�We�ve lived at Amberton since October 2013,� she said.
�Being near the beach was an important factor for us when we were deciding where to live, especially since we have three young children.
�They love playing outdoors and having fun so living close to the beach and being able to get there easily is something they really enjoy.
�We go for family visits to the beach most weekends, the children love being able to run around on the sand and splash in the surf.
�Now the beach pathway is open we head to the beach in the evening for a walk.�
