We visited here a couple of times. Sunset over the sea was stunning, we’ll worth a visit. A bench is provided to view the sea and the small beach area.

A mesmerising view from the top of the cliffs looking down into Anson Bay. You cannot swim there, but the leisurely winding track down to the beach reveals some fascinating geological features. Another great place for a picnic.

A spectacular little out of the way beach! There is a bit of a walk down to the bay and back up. I am 67 & my husband is 72 but we had no trouble and worth it. The scenery is beautiful and the water...More

Norfolk is a small island but there are many fantastic views along the cliff tops of hard to access bays. We didn't make the steep climb to the bay but enjoyed the view of it from the clifftops.

We took photos from the top looking down onto the beach. The beach is gorgeous but the steep climb decided for us! It is also not as safe to swim as Emily Bay from our observations.

Viewed from above near the car park, magnificent bay with stunning water colours and huge sandy beach. The walk down and climb back up again could put a lot of folks off . Give it a go, it is not a race to get there,...More

So many wow views on NI but this one is exceptional. Took the walk down the easy track to the beach and were rewarded with the place to ourselves. Stunning.

this is a very nice bay to visit but you have to walk a long way down to get to the beach. You can get some great views from up top.

A long walk to get to a beautiful secluded beach at the bottom of rugged coastline peppered with stunning Norfolk,Island pines. Sandy beach, but possibly dangerous to,swim in due to a dangerous rip. Enjoy but take care

I don't know if they even have 4WD cars to hire. You will get a free car usually with your accommodation and you just need a normal car. If you see a sign that says "impassable when wet", they mean it so don't attempt it if... More
