Great protected swimming area. Perfect place on a hot day to take a tube and just float around for a few hours. We visited on a stinker and noticed it does get very busy though so don't expect to have the place to yourself.

This is a lovely spot ideal for young children and older ones alike. Surfing smaller waves are safe and snorkeling secluded calmer ponds gives the chance to see lots of colorful fish. A bit rocky with the volcanic rocks in places but an ideal destination

This is another excellent area to visit when visiting Bargara. You can see evidence of the volcanic past of the area. Good to visit at low tide and look into the rock holes.

Excellent place for nature lovers and diving/snorkeling. Location on here is incorrect so google the correct location at Innes Park/Coral Cove.

Went with friends a couple of times as it was the only snorkeling spot I could find while we were staying in the area. On first sight my heart sank; I was trying to teach snorkeling to an inexperienced person and those rocks filled me...More

Had a dive here. Visibility was great. Coral varieties were great. Fish life is pretty slim. If you're a diver, just getting in the water and exploring is a good thing. If you are a "look at the pretty fish" style of diver, you would...More

Great rock pools, more coral than expected, some great little fish, and spectacular volcanic rock formations.

Barolin Rocks is actually a rocky point that attracts divers. Low tide the rocks are really exposed and the four beaches in the area would not be suitable for swimming. At high tide the sandy beach about 50 meters away from... More
