This was a fabulous walking spot. There were lots of people out enjoying it. It would be perfect for all abilities and the dog friendly beach accessible along the way looked great.

A fabulous beach but not much to entertain you. I'd like to see more restaurants and cafes. I think something similar to Mereweather beach can be done at Noby's.

This is the beach that the Pasha Bulka ran ashore. Lovely safe beach for families. Close to Lighthouse and Newcastle Harbour. Plenty of close by parking.
