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.

One of our best snorkels ever at this site! Straight into the water from shore at high tide, and we were immediately surrounded by schools of shining silver fish of all sizes. Highlights included a wobbegong shark, a pair of miniature cuttlefish, a colourful nudibranch and a big blue grouper! Awesome natural encounter. 🐟😀

A tiny, protected little bay, Fly Point is a snorkeler’s playground and there’s lots to see.
If you are looking for a swimming beach, then this is far too small and rocky and you are better off going around the corner to Little Beach but for snorkelers this is a favourite spot.
There’s only a very small stretch of sand at Fly Point, hemmed in by rocky outcrops and small boulders. At one end, fallen gum trees dip down into the sea. It’s very scenic in a wild, windswept sort of way.
Protected since 1983, Fly Point is an important sanctuary and has a large number of fish, sea sponge gardens, sensitive seagrasses, kelp forests, anemones and soft corals. A colourful sign at the top of the Fly Point stairs illustrates some of the many fish which include blue groupers, octopus, seahorses, butterfly fish and damsel fish.
It is easy to miss Fly Point. If you don’t know that it’s there, you can walk right past it. Keep an eye out for a long set of stairs opposite Neil Carroll Rotary Park which will lead you down to the bay.

Did a night dive here. Loved the soft corals. Nice quiet pace with lots to see underwater. Really enjoyed it and would recommend as dive or snorkel spot

The visit to the Native Gardens at Fly Point was not a great experience as it was essentially native bush with little or no maintenance. The water side at the point had good views but not outstanding.

Whilst it's not the barrier reef, there are plenty of large fish, little bits of blue coral and plenty of things to enjoy. It's a safe little cove and it's easy snorkelling for all levels with very easy access.

Fun activity on the early morning high tide. Bring your snorkel and fins and you will see at ton of fish. The more experienced can head out a little further for more variety.

Great snorkeling spot for beginners nice and close with still plenty to see and a bit further out for the more confident. Lots of different fish species on offer and differing under water landscape. As the title says just do it it's a great experience.
