Perfect for spotting the majestic blue Ulysses butterfly with a wingspan of up to nine centimetres. Butterflies can be seen from latitude 20°04’24 S and longitude 148°55’55 E.
A one-kilometre long, cosy bay which offers protection from south-east trade winds. There are nine public moorings situated to minimise impact to the reef in this sensitive ecological area. Snorkel along the bayside of Alcyonaria Point, named for the abundance of that coral there, or go just off the beach and marvel at the many species of small colourful fish. If you venture ashore and explore the creeks at certain times of the year, the bush is clouded with thousands of blue butterflies.
