Nora Creina is a small settlement of about 60 shacks and holiday houses, with the only facilities being a phone and occasionally open store. The attractive bay contains a semi-circular beach bounded by prominent 20 m high calcarenite headlands and reefs. The headlands are remnant of the Robe Range, that elsewhere has been eroded down to reefs (Fig. 4.17).The reefs and 500 m wide bay entrance lower waves at the shore to less than 0.5 m, which with the fine white sand maintain a firm low gradient beach and shallow bar (94). The beach is used as a car park and launching ramp, though vehicles are not permitted south of the access track. A few fishing boats are usually at anchor in the southern corner of the bay.The bay is named after the brigantine Nora Creina that struck a reef off the bay in 1858.

Swimming

This is the best and safest swimming beach between Robe and Beachport, and a very popular spot during the holidays with locals and daytrippers.

Surfing

None at the beach.

Fishing

Most fishers head out from the bay to fish the reefs, however there is also good rock fishing off the adjacent platforms.

General

A picturesque little settlement and bay.
