Lakes Coast Visitor Guide

PAGE 114 | LAKES COAST VISITOR GUIDE MERIMBULA Enjoy your time in memorable Merimbula Whether relaxing, swimming, surfing, boating, walking, dining, or just soaking up the seaside scenery, Merimbula has so much on offer. One popular highlight close to town is the Merimbula Boardwalk. Punctuated with seats and jetties, the boardwalk runs around the lake shore near Market Street, guiding you through mangrove forests, under gum trees and past oyster farms. About 3.4 kilometres return, the boardwalk will take around 1.5 hours to complete (but, of course, you don’t have to walk it all!). Waterview Luxury Apartments If you’d like to base yourself within easy reach of the boardwalk – and all the other wonderful things that Merimbula has to offer – Waterview Luxury Apartments is an excellent option. Located on the Fishpen Peninsula, right opposite the water, Waterview Luxury Apartments offers light-filled, spacious and comfortable apartments with full-length panoramic windows opening out to private balconies or patios, so you can really enjoy the superb views. Guests can also enjoy a crystal-clear, solar-heated saltwater pool, located on the first floor mezzanine area adjacent to a large entertainment space with twin barbecues. Waterview Luxury Apartments also offers a number of elegant, private and luxurious top-floor penthouses that really are large (around 25 squares, in fact) and provide unparalleled views, gracious living areas, a fully appointed gourmet kitchen and extra-large private balcony with sun lounges.
