Pirates Bay is for the adventurers, the wanderers and the dreamers.

A white stretch of sand running along a circle of rocky outcrops and cliffs makes for a dramatic sight.

The blue waters flow out to the Tasman Sea and beyond to the Southern and Pacific oceans. There’s nothing between here and New Zealand, some 2000 km’s away. From the south, the crisp winds blow in from Antarctica. 

This place is popular with surfers and solid swell is best found in Northern half of the bay, near Tesselated Pavement.

A favourite with families, the protected areas near the Blowhole and in particular where Blowhole Creek meets the  ocean are the calmest.

Sunbathers, swimmers, picnickers…the mid section of the beach offers wide open spaces against towering cliffs. 

There’s a space for everyone.
