Emily Bay, Norfolk Island

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.
