Just a 15 minute bike ride (via Geordie Bay) from the visitors centre is Parakeet Bay. A great swimming / snorkeling spot and a great place for a picnic. Beautiful blue clear water. Stunning spot.

Beautiful little bay, great if you can get a quite day. Only downside is you only need a few families to visit and its full. We visited early on a morning when it was empty and left at lunch time as it was getting full.
