Whilst hating beaches, I actually loved this one so much I swam in the middle of winter! Beautifully clear and inviting, a little pontoon in the middle, and nobody else. The locals say that in summer, the local kids look after the tourist kids and swim there all day long. Just perfect.

This is a lovely beach which is very safe. Visitors can snorkel & swim without getting into any trouble. The beach is Snow White & very very clean. Guaranteed you can get into the water & everything left would still be there when one returned. The old salt factory is located at the end of Emily bay which is basked... More

The calm clear waters of Emily Bay are enclosed by a barrier reef that protects the bay from all except the highest tides and biggest waves. The lack of swell makes this prefect for elderly and the young. Filled with fish and fringing coral reef habitat it is the prefect place to learn to snorkel. The white sandy seabed in... More

A true lagoon sheltered behind a barrier reef the calm clear water of Emily Bay provide hours of entertainment for children and adults alike. The lagoon hosts coral and reef fish within meters of shore and perfect for snorkling. The lack of waves make a swim out to the floating raft easy for any age. The lack of air pollution... More

Emily Bay is a beautiful beach area which would be perfect for swimming in the warmer months. The horseshoe shaped bay overlooks Lone Pine and then to the islands further out. It is adjacent to Kingston Historic Area, and has many grassy areas nearby - including Norfolk's golf club

It's a famous sightseeing spot, also the place that people can swim in Norfolk island, as all the other beaches are quite rocky. But it's too cold to swim in this winter season. Still worth of sightseeing though.

Emily Bay is where I spend my summer. Snorkel, swim, relax, glass bottom boat, the best place to spend summer. It is the best swimming pool in the World. The coral is so pretty and the fish are so friendly. I swim for 8-9 months of the year. Families love the safe bay for children to play and learn to... More

Great place to snorkel and discover the coral reef Family of stingrays live there but they do not touch you. The Lone Pine looks graceful on the island overlooking Emily Bay. It is so clean and attractive. Lagoon is safe to swim in
