Nobby's Beach has the lighthouse up one end and a great swimming and surfing beach up the other end.There is also a great cafe to have a snack, ice cream or fish'n' chips. Toilets have been upgraded and are modern and clean.

All the area in the vicinity of Nobby's head is most attractive and pleasant. You can just stroll, seriously walk, run or cycle around the bike track.
