On Port Stevens. The sand is white and the water suitable for children. Walk along the beach and enjoy the changing color of the clear water. Wonderful place.

We came down in a late afternoon and this spot was lovely. Little to no waves this place is perfect for families and for swimming. Beautiful with soft sand and plenty of parking. You can view Nelson bay over the water!
