Great spot for a bit of swimming and sun bathing on a safe and protected beach. We went in the late afternoon and enjoyed a chocolate ice cream from the van before heading off for a swim. An excellent afternoon.

Emily Bay, being a lagoon, is so safe and serene, the coral life in the lagoon is just amazing. is well worth spending time here.

Emily bay is beautiful and we could watch the water for ages. Of course being July it was quite windy on some days but that just made it more dramatic. After our wedding at the Captain Cook Monument we drove down to Emily bay to get some photos. They are great. The Salt house makes a good backdrop.

We were here in winter so didn't get to swim but there is a platform in the bay for people to swim from. Lovely beach and great for a picnic. The area surrounding the beach is picturesque and full of history as it is in Kingston. Would be very popular in the warm weather as there are few places it... More

This is one of the most beautiful protected beaches I have had the pleasure to walk along. Smooth white sand, shallow clear water, rock pools, wave cut platform, great picnic facilities with heaps of parking

We came to Norfolk Island for one week in 2014. I loved everything but especially swimming at Emily Bay. I kept dreaming about swimming there again and we came back in 2015. This time for 2 weeks. And I swam at Emily Bay almost every day. I already miss that beautiful spot again! Time to start planning an other visit.
