Sweeping coastal views means you get an instant hit of feel good holiday hormones before you even unpack the car. A resort style pool complex, tennis court, sand volleyball, kids’ club activities, games room, go karts, free wifi, a water park, bike hire… the list goes on. Best of all, you can nab ocean views from pretty much everywhere. This is one holiday you won’t get bored of.
There’s a lot to love on the accommodation front. Bringing the extended family? The Beach House happily sleeps six and is just a short walk from the sand. Looking for a romantic getaway? The Honeymoon Spa Retreat and its bubbling spa bath will have you swooning. Want to keep an eye on the kids without leaving the deck? The Poolside Condo is the ideal spot. Catering to coastal roamers in a Kombi and those looking for a luxe retreat – plus everyone in between.
The Sapphire Coast is not just a drawcard for holiday makers: during whale migration – June to mid November – it’s the perfect place to witness the magnificent humpbacks. Nearby, the sea theme continues at Merimbula Aquarium – make sure you visit at the 11.30am feeding times to see all the action. Bar Beach Kiosk on the sheltered Bar Beach has perhaps the most lovely view of any cafe in Australia, and does a mean baked eggs to boot. Go for an early morning snorkel, and grab brekky here as the waves roll in. For a ritzy end to the day, curate your own five course degustation at Waves. The tuna tartare is a must order.
