This is a special place for snorkelling and feeding the fish - many species, just be careful not to get nipped!

So much fun to buy $1 of food and have all colour and size of fish come right up to you to feed. Also a lovely sheltered spot to swim/snorkel and stunning blue water

Perfect for reef snorkelling from the beach. Mutton Birds return to land each evening. Water temperature December 2014 was 22 degrees which was refreshing and pleasant once wet.

A great small beach, well sheltered where the fish come to be fed. A dispenser machine for food. Also an honesty box to hire beach equipment and snorkels, fins, etc

Ned's Beach is a beautiful place to visit. Fish feeding is so much fun - pellets available for purchase for $1. A few steps into the water, and you can be snorkelling over beautiful coral, with lots of different fish. At low tide, it is very interesting to walk around the exposed reef - lots of sea urchins, sea hares... More

Gorgeous beach but sadly to blowy on the day we were there, so feeding the fish wasn't an option. We sat back off the beach, under the shelter of the palm trees

Ned's beach is a beautiful and quiet place where you can sit and soak in the atmosphere or go for a swim with the fish. The fish are beautifully coloured and quite large - amazing to see.
