Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Walking along the beach is always a good thing to do and Merimbula’s Main Beach is an easy walk. The surf was not too boisterous and the tide was going out, which was very pleasant for walking. Lots of people about enjoying the last warm days as we head into the cooler months. A pleasant experience.

nice soft sand with 4km worth of beach to enjoy. great for boogie boarding if you like that sort of thing and depending on the day they have great markets. I walked from Merimbula to Pambula and I would say doing that walk is much better than the board walk (bring food otherwise you will regret it aha)

Merimbula main beach is the start of a wide expanse of sandy beach that stretches over 5km to Pamula beach at the other end. Never too crowded, always somewhere to find peace with your towel. Generally great waves for body surfing. Not patrolled, so care needed as many sandbars and rips to watch for. Popular with walkers, often after 500m, will have the sand to yourself. Not a lot of parking, but many visitors walk from nearby accommodation. During our November visit, water temperature 18C.

Nice beach with a great playground and grass area. Lots of sand and room to play, and not too far from the centre of town.

This is a beautifully clean beach. Lifeguards situated during the season. A few surfers. Dog off-leash space down from the main beach. Gorgeous sands and never crowded. Close to town and lots of accomodation

This beach is easily accessed from Ocean Drive with a short walk across Ford Park. A great beach to walk along, relax or have fun activity time with the family. No shade so bring some with you. Enjoy!

Walked from mitchies jetty all the way along this beautiful beach to Pambula. Took 3 hours for return trip. Not many walkers but the ones that were there were all very friendly, water was crystal clear with a few fishermen and surfers scattered along the beach. Toilets and drinks available each end and the walk is definitely worth it. Sand fairly hard near the water making it easy to walk or run. Enjoy the fresh clean air we have on offer and see this beautiful stretch of beach.
