  • Great little beach for families. Lots of grass areas for picnics and calm and clean water for cooling off. Kiosk near by and ice cream truck seemed to be there most of the time too.

  • Scenic and safe beach with easy parking and amenities close by. Water is usually clean and clear, safe for smaller children. I even saw two dolphins 25m from shore. Nothing here for adrenaline...

  • This is a fantastic beach, a local favourite for picnics, especially at sunsets. Also some fishing here and a boat ramp at the end where the pelicans hang out. Not an ocean facing beach so no big waves which is nice for the kids. The grass area is really nice for picnics and BBQs. There are also good shower and toilet facilities and a gas BBQ. Quite a bit of parking too. Also a nice childrens’ play area. Just up from the beach is a great local fav restaurant and bar (Little Beach Boat House) which is an awesome venue. Sunsets are awesome for 2 reasons. The sunset itself is beautiful and you’d be pretty unlucky if you don’t spot the local dolphins.
  • A great small beach in Nelson bay for young children. There are no waves which is perfect for kids who aren’t strong swimmers. Even though the weather wasn’t the best for visiting the beach we still had a nice time.
