My first time snorkelling and wow! It was amazing! Absolutely beautiful clear warm water could have stayed there all day but cut myself on the oyster shells but that's my clumsiness not the beach!

Fabulous spot for a family picnic in the park. You can go for a walk through the bush, loads of birds.

This is a marine reserve so NO FISHING.
There is a small pebbled beach where you can feed the fish. They absolutely love being fed and almost jump out of the water to get bread. You can go go snorkelling here, but you must stay close to shore line because of boats. Take bread with you to feed the fish.There are often dolphins close to shore.
Also a great site for scuba diving, but only at high tide.

Close by there are boats to go on dolphin watch tours all year and whale watching in the winter.

Don't expect to be here alone. It will get quite busy in summer on weekends and in the holidays almost impossible to get a park. On a nice winters day you may just get the place to yourself if you are lucky.

There are plenty of bream about in this place and if your lucky a turtle! But there are heaps of various marine life in there and visibility varies too! Sometimes murky and sometimes clarity. You can go only at high tide because the fish congregate around the rocks which have oysters on them. Wear shoes and fins because you can get cut on rocks.There is a clear passage for entry into the water between the rocks straight ahead from the stairs. I hear the diving is good in Fly Point too! People can feed the fish but you are not allowed to do any activities like fishing because it a protected marine site!! Lovely place to go.

Hidden around the corner from Fly Beach is this area's snorkling wonderland. As you enter the water there are fish all around your legs. You dont even need goggles to see them. Venture out and the fish follow you. Ordinary though as both the fish and the weed on the bottom are un-spectacular. Good entertainment for the kids or if you havent been snorkling in better places. Beware the sharp rocks everywhere. Make your way out through the narrow sand channel near the steps. Dont venture too far out near the poiunt as the currents can bu quite strong and sweep you away. Nothing dangerous though as you can always come in further up.
