Halfway between Sydney and Melbourne, with it’s own airport and daily flights, is the coastal oasis of Merimbula. The holiday hub of the Sapphire Coast has something for every holiday maker. Ocean adventures, fine dining, a taste of the country life, walks in pristine forests or just relaxing with your toes in the sand and a good book.
If the great outdoors appeals then you’ve come to the right place. Take a gentle stroll along the Merimbula Boardwalk, with a waterside coffee stop halfway, or head into the hills and the clean country air among the mighty trees of the South East’s National Parks.
Perhaps you prefer your walk to be following a small white ball? Then you will find the Pambula Merimbula Golf Club just a 9 iron from our door and Tura Beach Country Club just a 10 minute drive away with outstanding ocean views, great meals and a stunning course.
The beaches here are second to none. Dazzling white sand and clear blue water can be found just a short stroll from our door. Catch a wave on Main Beach, sip a latte and watch the kids paddle at Bar Beach or hire a stand up board and explore the lake from Mitch’s Jetty. Pambula Beach is just a quick drive away, or hop on a bicycle and take the bike track.
Retail therapy is close by, with a range of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. Grab a healthy snack, morning tea or coffee in Booktique bookshop or book yourself into a "hatted" restaurant for a night to remember.
Oysters are always on the menu in Merimbula and more often than not you can see where they were grown from your waterside table. Take a closer look at how they are farmed on a tour with Captain Sponge or sample fresh ones plucked from the lake, right next door at Wheelers Seafood Restaurant
