Hamilton Island is home to some of Australia’s premium waterfront restaurants, including Long Pavilion, Sails and of course, Boomie’s.

But if you’re after beachside dining on a budget; nothing beats good old fish n’ chips from Popeye’s Takeaway. Located on Front Street, Popeye’s has been serving up local favorites for years, including homemade potato scallops (potato cakes for you Melbournians) and a fisherman’s basket to die for.

You’ll love Popeye’s takeaway, and just as it says in the name, you can take your feed away to tuck into on the beach. Now that’s beachside dining, the original way.
