Diamond Bay, named after the Diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria, is a popular family beach surrounded by impressive sandstone cliffs.

The site is a popular location for surf fishing as is slightly more protected than other areas of the coast with extensive rock platforms.

Diamond Bay Road leads to a small car park behind the beach which is accessed from a walking track and steep staircase.

Head east to the St Pauls lookout and circuit walk which was a strategic observation site for the early settlers and gives stunning views over the Bay of Islands.

Head west to Jubilee Point for views back to Sorrento. The headland of Jubilee Point also separates Diamond Bay from the smaller St Pauls Beach.

The area around Diamond Bay contains significant Aboriginal midden sites. Please stay to formed tracks to avoid disturbing these fragile, protected sites.
