“Beautiful part of Hobart”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

If you can visit Sandy Bay do so- it's very picturesque and there are lots of places to stop and browse.
The houses and views make it a lovely place to visit.

“No Night Life Attractions in Sandy Bay, says Trip Advisor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Who says there is no night life in Sandy Bay? Not True. I saw a lady walking her labrador at 11.30 PM along Bay Road the other night. They were both attractive -- & lively

“It's all about the water and peacefulness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

I enjoyed Sandy Bay from the perspective of a local with sailing and arts interests. Continue a leisurely walk from Battery Point, following the sculpture-walk, featuring artworks based on the history of the area. You'll find beautiful water vistas along the way and peaceful places to stop and reflect. With Hobart's rich maritime history, the Derwent River is best appreciated while on a boat or yacht.
