Emily Bay is a safe protected beach with a lovely reserve around it. The water is a gorgeous clear blue and is the ideal family beach.

What a fabulous place to swim and snorkel. This bay is very protected and very calm especially at low tide.

The water was a little cold in the mornings but a lot of the time the place was nearly deserted and we enjoyed swimming in the beautiful waters.

Emily bay was crystal clear and calm the entire length of our trip. Snorkeling was amazing with an abundance of marine life to be seen.
