Lush with wild banana trees, indigenous vegetation and a variety of birdlife, Banana Beach also offers a tidal pool, lagoon and excellent surfing conditions.
You will find many opportunities for family activities, including a beach protected by shark nets and supervised by lifeguards, snorkelling around rock pools, fishing from the beach or nearby rocks, dolphin and whale-watching, deep-sea fishing and scuba-diving.
