The location of the park makes it very easy to walk to the shops, the beach, or the Country Club Hotes... More

We stayed in one of the new Catamaran units. They are very well designed with comfortable beds. The plunger and plunger coffee provided were the touch that marked this out for us. Right across from the beach. Say no more,

Shoal Bay Holiday Park is located directly across the road from beautiful Shoal Bay beach and a five minute walk from local shops and restaurants. The holiday park is spotless and the staff are very friendly. Lovely park in a magnificent location.

I booked one of the Sunseeker cabins. Very satisfied with general layout, decor and equipment. The patio area is a bit small but the location makes up for this. Very helpful staff at reception (assisted with late check-in as well as a maintenance issue with the TV). Only 2 negatives (but this won't stop me from returning ... (1) the... More

My family & I just spent 4 nights in one of the Safari tents at Shoal Bay Holiday Park. The tent itself was as clean as I would have expected from a tent, with just enough inside for a simple & relaxing stay.
