Lovely peaceful spot to walk down and view (short walk on boardwalk over a creek). Road in is dirt and steep so don't attempt if its been raining. This isn't safe swimming like Emily Bay, and I suggest if you do want to swim, go at low tide.

To get to this bay you have to drive a short distance on gravel a road which is not good after a shower of rain. A walk down to the beach is rewarded with another great view and very quite beach.

When you come to Norfolk for the first time you don't realize how many bays there are to see. I have enjoyed this one as it was different weather quite cloudy and a bit showery. Take photos no matter what, you will be rewarded. Another beautiful scene to experience.

After a couple of days on the island, you will realise just how many bays there are to visit, photograph from above, climb down to, climb up from..... This is another one that is nice to walk to, photograph and watch the locals swimming. Quiet and tranquil. Take a snack and enjoy being away from the tour buses.

This is one of those places you resist reviewing in case it becomes popular - and you'd prefer to keep it to yourself! We went on a lovely day, a local family was enjoying the rock pools near the shore. We put it on our list to bring our togs back the next day for a soak - unfortunately it... More

Nice place for a short walk. Protected beach, not sure I'd swim there but it seems that the locals do.
