Reviewed 25 February 2012

too many surfers for the waves.... unfortunately the joy of a surf is now a thing of the past here. There are too many surfers and too much agro!

“Gorgeous.”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

What a view. This is my favorite place to walk the dog. There is nothing better than having a meal at Rainbow Bay Surf Club overlooking Snapper.

“A Surfers Heaven”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Snapper rocks is a haven for Surfers - A bit too popular really as it gets very crowded when the surf is pumping

I you are not into surfing enjoy the beachfront walkway and a beer at the surf club

“Lots here”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Snapper has some excellent vantage points for photography, a world renowned surf break, and an excellent surf lifesaving club to grab a meal or a drink. Take the foot path around to Froggy's beach - you'll see why the name.
