  • Further up the coast from Newcastle lies the beachside town of Fingal Bay. A crescent shaped uncrowded beach good for surfing and swimming. It is patrolled for swimmers  more »
  • First time back in this area in 25year. Stayed out at Seaside Holiday Resort at Fingal Bay. Great accommodation, beautiful beach and great customer service in the shops.  more »
  • Oh what a beautiful beach. Really enjoyed the moment. Tried to walk to shark island but the waves were unforgiving. Water was so beautiful and good place to sun bake. Def worth a visit
  • Great beach, excellent beach break. Good spot for body surfing, beginner body boarding, swimming and surfing for all ages and abilities. Never gets too busy, apart from public holidays and some long weekends. There is a kiosk and cafe at the entrance to the beach, as well as public toilets, outdoor showers, a park with a playground and only 10 minutes drive away is the Nelson Bay town centre with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. Almost everything you need. Definitely don't miss the Point Stephens lighthouse on Fingal Island. You can access it as follows. Once you enter Fingal beach, turn left and walk across the sand spit to the island. It is about 2 km walk from Fingal beach all the way to the lighthouse and there is only one trail so it's easy to find. Make sure to cross only at low tide to avoid crossing through water or havong to foght through dangerous currents. Excellent day trip! Highly recommended!
