The large number of shops and eateries make Hillarys an excellent place to visit. Because the lay out is indoor/outdoor it does lack air-conditioning so it can be warm on a hot day but the ice cream is excellent.

It is not actually a dog beach. Many people walk their dogs along the board walk on a lead, there is a coffee shop behind the yacht club that is dog friendly and provides water bowls etc.
