We first visited Emily Bay while on Norfolk Island in 1999 and went back there as part of an organized tour this time. It was just as beautiful as we remembered it - calm waters and white sands. We later hired a car and went back again as part of our own tour of the island. Of historical significance to... More

Beautiful scenery and a lovely setting and even though it was Winter, there were people swimming in the clear sheltered bay with the water temperature being around 18-20c!

Emily Bay is such a stunning beach. It's tranquil and unspoilt, with beautiful white sand, clear blue water and a lovely place to swim (even though it's freezing at first) as it's protected by the reef. It's a place you can just sit for hours and look at all the wonderful sites. We had 7 nights on Norfolk and went... More

Norfolk Island has much to offer visitors. From the historical convict sites and Mutiny of the Bounty history, to museums. Pristine beaches and magnificent coastline and scenery. The food is five star!!

This is such a perfect little bay - though it was too cool to swim the weekend of our visit, it was still a lovely spot to sit and watch the water. Some great photos taken in this area. Lots of picnic spots in the near area with the golf course just as the edge.

You haven't seen Norfolk Island if you haven't been to Emily Bay. It is an obligatory beach visit. To look at from the land, or to get wet, either way, it is just beautiful. i surprised myself by swimming to and climbing up onto the anchored pontoon. Then jumping off into the stunningly clear water. It was THE highlight of... More

Emily Bay is a beautiful bay located near Kingston on Norfolk Island. It is home to a reef where there is coral and a large variety of fish which can be viewed from the glass bottom boat that goes onto the lagoon at low tides.
