One of the greatest things about The Quay is its ability to induce its guests into sheer relaxation. Its absolute beachfront location is perfect for those who want unwind by the sea. A brief stroll down the lawn brings you onto the golden sands of Callala Beach where you can swim in its clear blue waters or stroll along its vast expanse of white sand.

Winter or summer The Quay is the perfect location to unwind.
When you tire of relaxing there is a whole array of activities to do and sights to see right on your doorstep. Below is a list of just some of the activities you can enjoy whilst staying at The Quay.

The bistro also has a small kids corner with lots of toys to keep them entertained. And coming soon a new purpose built kids room!!!
Watch your favourite sporting event on the big screen and if you are planning on having a few drinks then the courtesy bus is available Monday to Saturday from 4pm and Sundays from 3:30pm.
The club often has great kids school holiday and weekend activities too such as craft, bingo, discos, cooking classes, movie nights etc so it’s a great way to also entertain the kids.
