Turquoise Bay and the Oyster Stacks

Our three days of snorkeling have come to an end. I took fewer photos here than at the Great Barrier Reef (also, we spent a lot of time watching the octopi and the turtles.)



Beach Review #6: Turquoise Bay
Rating 4.8/5
Best use: Snorkeling, swimming and sun baking (it's not sun bathing down here, it's sun baking.)
Cool stuff: On one side of the beach there is a drift snorkeling area, on the other side, a protected sandy bay. Five minutes by car down the coast is a protected snorkeling lagoon on sandstone steps called Oyster Stacks. The beaches have almost no facilities. Just a parking area, a pit toilet and a very small shaded area with benches (no water, no trash cans, etc.) It's beautiful though, and the snorkeling is really good.
