Fingal beach is a glorious white sand beach tucked under Fingal Head. This family-friendly, patrolled surf beach is perfect to catch a wave, catch a fish, or just catch a sunrise on your early morning walk or for a relaxing Sunday afternoon drink overlooking the beach. Fingal Spit is a sand spit that links the mainland to Fingal Island. The island is still accessible by boat and well worth taking a cruise which includes a fully guided nature walk visiting an Aboriginal fish trap lagoon, as well as Point Stephens Lighthouse and ruined caretakers cottage.

Food scene
Nelson Head Heritage Lighthouse and Reserve Nelson Head Lighthouse reserve sits on a lawn headland at 53 metres above sea level, surrounded by a white picket fence. This particular vantage point was chosen back in 1875 because the spectacular views of the ocean gave an advantage to lighthouse keepers. This also makes it a fantastic spot to soak up the beauty of Port Stephens today. Learn about the lighthouse from the Coastal Patrol radio base, which is staffed by volunteers and open to guests. The historic Lighthouse Cottage is still home to the original lightroom and lighthouse keeper's residence. However, the cottage has been transformed into a local museum where you can see nautical memorabilia, photographs, and maps, and learn about the history and heritage of the area. When you’ve toured the museum and taken some photos, enjoy a delicious lunch of coffee in the adjacent tea rooms, whilst taking in magnificent panoramic views of Port Stephens.
