There is nothing quite like laying on a beautiful sandy beach with the warm waves softly rolling onshore, and a cool breeze blowing the trees, swimming in the beach or lake, sun baking with your favourite book in your hand.
This is the South Coast – a most magical place to unwind!
Merimbula – Safe beach to swim in. Usually small rolling waves which are good for body surfing or boogie boarding or just floating.
Pambula Beach – Similar to Merimbula but can sometimes have higher waves which makes it better for Boogie Boarding or Bodysurfing.
Ben Boyd – Pinnacles – Usually we will have the whole beach to ourselves, it’s not suitable for swimming but offers tranquillity unlike other beaches, a great beach to relax or for walking on the beach and also offers a short nature walk with stunning views. (1.1klm 20-40mins)
Tathra Beach - Tathra Beach stretches north to Mogareeka Inlet and Mimosa Rocks National Park. A good place to view visiting whales or spot the local wild life who love to visit the beach in the morning.
Do you prefer sunsets or sunrises?

You can decide if it is for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
