Beaches

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.

Bittangabee - A rocky enclosed bay with a small, scenic beach,

Bittangabee Bay is an appealing spot to kick back and soak up

spectacular coastline views. Remote without being inaccessible, it

offers secluded swimming and fishing in a pristine natural

environment. We will bring a picnic lunch and a pair of binoculars

for a spot of bird watching and whale watching during the migration

season.

Bittangabee Bay is easily accessible from Bittangabee campground,

and walkers will want to try Bittangabee Bay to Green Cape walk,

part of the iconic Light to Light walk. There are even nearby ruins for

history buffs, and an abundance of local wildlife for the naturalists.

Long-nosed bandicoots, wombats, brush-tailed possums, and lace

monitors all live in the area.

(Bittangabee is approx. 1h 15mins drive from Merimbula – 68klm around 15klms is dirt road and offers a 4x4 wheel drive experience)
