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.

Scenic, safe beach for toddlers, great for kayaker & a favorite with surfers (they launch at the head to cross the channel to reach the waves). Has a popular kiosk with room to sit alongside & view the ocean.

While it was great to return to this safe little beach with our grandchildren, unfortunately, the parking situation was almost impossible with people buying coffees at the coffee shop located there, when they weren't there to enjoy Bar Beach. Merimbula Council should do something about the parking, because when you are going there with small children, it is difficult to walk down through the traffic from the top road to get to the beach.

Bar Beach is small and has no surf at all. This is why it’s particularly attractive to young families.
However, there’s limited parking and on a warm day or in holidays, it can be packed.
You might have to park up on the main road and walk down the hill to the beach.
It’s also very popular with walkers on the new track nearby who come to buy coffee at the cafe, which also sells brunches and lunches.
It’s clean and pretty and sometimes is sheltered from winds which blow at other beaches.
Good for kids u dear 10.

Nice little beach off a walking track/side street. The water is rather still (not much waves), making it great for kids or those who want to relax. The isn't much car parking, making it a bit dangerous, but its a hidden gem!

Wonderful beach at the opening of the Merimbula top Lake. Reasonably safe and gives good access to the Bar which is a haven for the local surfing community

Beautiful Bar Beach. Quiet and serene and small. Tucked away. Early in the morning, very fresh and sunny day. Barbecue Area, a few seats, very small and no one here.

There is a small turnoff sign from Lake St which could be easily missed. I am guessing this helps keep Bar Beach a locals secret.

A kiosk at the top, lovely little beach, sand and rocky section, Bar Beach is one of those hidden gems
