Bali At The Bay

is located in the heart of Port Stephens, ‘Blue Water Wonderland’. Just 2 minutes walk from the beach of Shoal bay. The walk is down a quiet dead-end street along side a bush reserve and the water can be seen through the trees from the facility. 

Shoal Bay 

is known to many as the most beautiful of beaches. It is the eastern-most beach inside the port and is refreshed with clean Pacific Ocean water on each tide. At the point closest to us the sandy bottom stretches out till the water is very deep and the result is that cool turquise colour.

On a broader scale, Port Stephens and Nelson Bay offer so many great locations and experiences. The two dinosaur-like headlands that guard the port’s opening form part of an ancient volcanic rim. They lend a dramatic background to a peaceful place. From where you walk to the beach, you can see the sun rise between them at certain times of the year. Tomaree Head, which is on our southern side is fitted with a great set of paths and stairways, making the walk to the top both safe and exhilarating.
