Blacks Beach is a beautiful piece of coastline and an ideal spot to relax. The beach is dotted with endemic fauna and has awe inspiring views of the Pacific Ocean and southern Great Barrier Reef islands, whilst also being secluded and quiet. It's also a photographers paradise for brilliant sunrises.The 6 kilometre coast line is flat and makes it very easy to walk, jog, play or just lie on the beach in between swims. The more enthusiastic go kite surfing. Fishing is also a great escape and at Blacks Beach, Bream and Whiting can be caught off the beach.
The Eimeo Hotel set high on a cliff is worth a visit for the spectacular views out to the islands. Just breathtaking.Sunsets are also awesome from the Eimeo Hotel.
