Fly Point is must see for snorkeling. No, there are no fly's there, it's about flying a flag! But be careful. If the tide is running out, and you are leisurely swimming around looking at the fish, you may get close to the oyster rocks...More

The parking was a nightmare..BUT it was well worth the stress of finding a spot because once there the soft white clean sand and crystal clear water make for a great swim. The kids loved it. Added bonus dolphins visited!

Situated in a quiet corner of Nelson Bay it has a nice beach with soft white sand and has calm waters suitable for young families. There is also a public restroom available.
