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.

  • We didn't expect much of a 'beach holiday' when visiting Norfolk Island, however Emily Bay delivered, it's simply beautiful and a great way to end a day of exploring.  more »
  • This place is absolutely stunning, from all vantage points and even in different types of weather. There was heavy rain on the Island for two days during our stay, and this did make it a little cloudy...  more »
  • quite beach on Norfolk with safe swimming and some decent snorkelling to be had, reef shelters the bay from rough weather and sharks which made for fun swimming and snorkelling  more »

Where to stay in Norfolk Island

Guesthouses and bed and breakfasts remain the best mid-range options. If you need luxuries like a swimming pool and an onsite restaurant, opt for one of the island's resorts. Burnt Pine, the central settlement, serves as the most popular place to stay, offering the best access to Norfolk Island's small airport. For scenic ocean views, stay in a hillside lodge near the coastal village of Kingston, the island's capital.
