“Beautiful clear water”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

The water was crystal clear and it was entertaining to see the local school children having their swimming lessons. On the downside, I am glad that I found a large piece of broken glass in the water before it lodged in someone's foot.

“Beautiful Bay”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I wish the weather had been warm enough to go for a swim. Emily bay is a lovely place to sit and relax. The bay being protected by the reef is a bonus for swimmers - no sharks

“Paradise”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This beautiful little bay is one of my favourite places in world and coming from a non beach girl that is night praise! Love that water is so salty that you can bob around like a cork with little or no effort

“Wonderful place to spend time in the sun”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

It actually took us a while to find this place. As its the only swimming beach on Norfolk, its worth the look. Calm waters in a cove, lovely sandy beach, and considering the great hot weather, hardly anyone to have to share it with. Love the place.
