Another great feature of Harbour Beach is its location. It is easily accessible, just steps away from the heart of the town and is therefore surrounded by local facilities and amenities,

One of the highlights of The Harbour Beach is its calm waters, as it is sheltered from the winds and waves that can make swimming difficult. There are, of course, boats moored in the harbour so it is not ideal for deep swimming. However, the calm harbour waters make it a great spot for families with young children who want to just dip their toes in the shallow water.
