Maybe you’d like to explore Moon Bay, there’s a fantastic, but steep walking track that leads to the sandy and secluded Moon Bay. Strong rips and currents make this beach relatively dangerous for a swim, there are many safe swimming beaches nearby including Tathra, Bermagui and Merimbula and it’s a great spot for a surf.
Kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes. Moon Bay has some historic artefacts to explore, you might notice rusted stubs of mooring rings and grooves in the cliffs – these were once a log slide and mooring site where timber and farm products were loaded on barges.
Take a picnic and enjoy the warm rays of the sun, or if you feel like a walk you could head off on the Wajurda Point walking track which leads through shady eucalypt forest to a spectacular lookout over the deep sapphire ocean, it’s also great for whale watching during the winter and the spring.
