Emily Bay, Norfolk Island

(4.9/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
At Emily Bay, you can play in the creek by the salthouse or jump off a raft tethered in the middle of the bay. If you want to relax, take a quiet walk along the sandy shore at this almost deserted beach. Low tide is perfect for snorkeling by the reef surrounding the bay. Many brightly colored fish will come right up and nibble at your fingers. An alternative way to see the marine life that the reef supports is a ride in a glass-bottom boat. Add Emily Bay and other attractions to your Norfolk Island trip itinerary using our Norfolk Island vacation builder.

  • Swam, paddle boarded and snorkelling all very assessable at this beach. Water temperature is around 21 degrees, makes staying in the water easy.  more »
