Popular with locals and tourists alike, Horseshoe Bay boasts some top diving and snorkeling spots. Just a short swim away from the iconic beach lie two granite outcrops lapped by crystal-clear waters, which abound with colorful fish and coral. If you feel up for the adventure, rent snorkeling equipment at the beach resort and head out there. The alternative is to spend a relaxed day just strolling on the soft sand or lounging under palm trees at the beach bar. Put Horseshoe Bay on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Port Elliot planning site.

I have been visiting horseshoe bay for more than 55 years, the view is always as good as I remember each time that I visit. more »
Amazing beach. Great for jetty jumping or to swim out to the floating platform. There's a playground for children and a cafe to crab a bite.
Good calm beach for kids, families, etc. Not much / any swell. Has good amenities and a surf lifesaving club
