What a beautiful unspoilt place to swim and laze on the hillside under the shade of a Norfolk pine tree. Take your snorkel gear as there is an abundance of fish to see in the bay.

Love sitting under a tree with a book and watching the water. Great place for snorkeling. Very safe for swimming, calm and very blue. Great spot!

Interesting to drive around or to walk along the beach at. We had a swim here, which was very nice and peaceful. As with most places here, interesting history to be learnt and see.,

We went to Emily Bay to experience the magnificent scenery and ended up having a swim in the crystal clear turquoise waters. What a treat!

I love the sea but I don't swim in the sea. I did at Emily Bay. Read the other comments - they are all true. It is a beautiful lagoon.

You can 't get much better than this! Snorkelling in a Coral lagoon - completely safe from sharks and protected by two reefs. No crowds just a few locals and lucky tourists (And it's January!). Clean sand - no rubbish in sight. Beautiful shady trees - great picnic spot.

This bay is a safe place to swim. It has easy access and in Jan there was a mobile food vendor if you wanted snacks/ cold drinks but didn't want to leave the beach area. Water was crystal clear on most days and snorkelling revealed interesting fish, coral and rock structures. There is no tap though to rinse off after... More
