Lovely sheltered beach

Even though it was mid-winter, we enjoyed three visits to Emily Bay, relaxing on the beach while our granddaughter played in the sand. Nice bird life and nearby views.

Lovely sandy horseshoe shaped bay, with a raft to swim to! Ideal family spot for a picnic and swim. Changing rooms nearby, and lovey views out to sea, and along the coast.

Great place for swimming... or just sitting on the beach and relaxing. As nearly everywhere you go on the Island there are bbq facilities and tables and benches to sit at.

Not only is the best place for a swim on the island, or that it might be one of the best beaches in Australia or the Pacific but one of the best beaches in the world! One word "Heaven!".

we had an invigorating swim out to the pontoon and then a lovely walk on the beach. Only ones there because it was winter - but not too cold.

The colour of the water is always stunning not water what the weather and forms a lovely contrast with the sand. Safe swimming with a pontoon in the middle.

Swam here on my previous trip. It was a lot cooler this time and I was not quite game enough to go in.

Very picturesque bay which is perfect for a swim. The bay is protected from the open sea by the inner reef which keeps the water calm even on a very rough day.
