Great family stay near beach

We were in Tathra for a rugby 7's carnival and stayed in a surf villa with direct access to the beach. The villa was well equipped and lovely and clean. Great facilities for families as well including a fun jumping pillow and water park for kids. Would thoroughly recommend this park.

A week away with family and two dogs

Pros: Multiple options offered by the location with simple access to some lovely beach walking, good surf, fishing just 5 minutes away on the Bega River.
Cons: Nothing, I liked it a lot just the way it is.
Location: Surfing, fishing, walking - some very nice National Park areas a short drive away, some neat little coffee shops near the Van and Camping Park.
Had 7 great days with family and two dogs just a few steps away from a beautifull stretch of beach. First time we tried this with the family pets along, all was fine given the great pet friendly set up at Tathra Beach Side.

Pet Friendly Cottages with great atmosphere

Pros: Great feel as you enter the place, the beach on your door step, the sound of the waves crashing on the beach at night. Can't wait to go back.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Merimbula & Eden are not far away for day trips. The beaches are amazing. Whale museum in Eden is worth checking out.
The place has a great atmosphere, with the beach right beside the park. They have a cool swimming pool and waterslides for kids and adults. The Pet friendly cottages we stayed in are excellent with a safe yard-ed area for your dog as well. Has a complete kitchen, air conditioner, tv, etc. Plenty of play equipment for the kids. 20 minutes from Bega, but the scenic route along the coast is even better.
