Shoal Bay nsw (Newcastle, Australia)

Sunshine and Sand at Scenic Shoal Bay NSW

When choosing a picturesque and tranquil destination in New South Wales, there’s one place that sits at the top of many traveller’s wish lists: Shoal Bay. An easy three-hour journey from Sydney – and the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Australia’s most popular city – this cosy suburb is ideal for relaxing by the beach, book in hand, and whiling away the hours. Although it’s fair to say each bay that makes up Port Stephens delivers a large dose of awe-inspiring natural beauty, Shoal Bay takes it up another notch. Its long stretch of pristine, stunning white sand is the perfect contrast to the enticing blue sea. The sand and sea are where most activities take place, understandably, but the area is also home to a small collection of celebrated restaurants serving food which mirrors the gorgeousness of Shoal Bay.

Exploring the Nature of Shoal Bay

One of the main allures of Shoal Bay has already been touched upon: its white sandy beaches. The wonderful Shoal Bay Beach, a curved strip of pristine white sand that stretches two-and-a-half kilometres, is an idyllic spot to unwind and enjoy the sweeping, mesmerising ocean views. For a little more adventure, however, a trek up Tomaree Head is a must. Not only does the hike provide an enjoyable stroll through nature, but the summit of Tomaree Head boasts the best panoramic views of the area. Whether it’s swimming, snorkelling or kayaking, the bay’s clear and calm blue water is impossible to resist – especially when you consider bottlenose dolphins reside in the inlet! When it comes to food, you can’t go wrong with strolling along the waterfront and tucking into some takeaway fish and chips. Yet for those that want to go the extra mile dining-wise, their travel schedule needs to find space for a visit to Little Beach Boathouse. This restaurant, which is complete with a prime position overlooking the bay, cooks up the freshest seafood to perfection.

Accommodation Options in the Area

When searching for Shoal Bay accommodation, there are two main choices available. First of all is the Ramada Resort Shoal Bay. This upmarket option comprises well-furnished apartments and suites, swimming pools and multiple on-site restaurants. With all that said, the Ramada Resort’s main advantage is its location. Just a few short steps from the beach, the property offers memorable views of the bay. An alternative place to stay is the Shoal Bay Holiday Park. This holiday park not only supplies a similarly fantastic location by the beach, but also spacious and comfortable self-contained accommodations at a reasonable price. On-site facilities such as a tennis court, basketball court and outdoor dining areas also make the Shoal Bay Holiday Park a great place for socialising with other travellers.
