“Lovely beach, only 10mins drive from centre of town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Perfect for an afternoon chill out - we ate lunch at the Squid Shack (excellent), then walked around the cove for the kids to run off some energy, finished up with coffee and cake at the Emu Point Cafe - lovely! the kids really enjoyed visiting the Brig and Museum in the morning, so having such a safe and sheltered beach as an afternoon activity was the perfect balance. And the water is warm enough for swimming even for visitors from Singapore!

“Hidden coves”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

From the main jetty, follow the rocks around to the other side of the cafe and beyond to stumble across two secluded pristine coves.

“Fantastic for young children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

What a find for those with young children. Crystal clear water, grassed areas, no waves and white sand for the sand castles.

“Emu Point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

There was a sandy beach at the point which gently sloped. The sea was warm and suitable for swimmers of any age or ability.
There is a swimming enclosure with segregated lanes for serious length/lap swimmers.
