Merimbula is the holiday 'resort' of the Sapphire Coast. Situated between Tathra and Pambula on the coast, Merimbula welcomes many thousands of tourists throughout the year.
This town with a population of around 4,000 (and far more in summer) is situated around the beautiful coastal waterways of Merimbula, Top and Back Lakes. These clean tidal lakes provide the perfect site for this holiday town. Their changing parade of blues each day and the many water sports that can be enjoyed on the lakes make Merimbula's waterways a major attraction for visitors.
Beaches and Fishing

Gentle beaches suitable for small children are found around the lake foreshores whilst great surfing beaches outside the lake areas offer a variety of waves for board and body surfers.

Some are patrolled during the summer months and some offer BBQ facilities, changerooms and toilets.
