The appeal of Pearlfisher is its position in a magic triangle of cosy cottage, uncrowded beach and alfresco restaurants. It could sustain you indefinitely. But if you feel guilty at so little activity here are some possibilities.

Dine Out
- The restaurants at Pearl Beach do more than great coffee. Pearls On The Beach is well known for fine food and wines. You will adore the beach house atmosphere and ocean view. Sit n Chats is more casual and has an excellent menu from raisin toast to full meals. Both restaurants are mere metres from Pearlfisher.

Swim Laps In The Ocean Baths - some hardy souls do this all year round. Alternatively, sit on the sunny rocks with a book and watch other people do laps.

Go Fishing - Pearl Beach offers excellent beach fishing and excellent rock fishing. Whiting, bream and blackfish are frequently caught.

Rock pool Gazing - There are mini worlds to be explored at low tide on the easily accessible rock shelf beyond the baths. Fabulous views from here to Pittwater, Lion Island and Palm Beach.

Paddling Possibilities - If kayaking or surf skiing interest you then Pearl Beach is calm enough for both. Bring your own gear.

Cycling - Load up the bikes. The flat, leafy streets and absence of traffic at Pearl Beach are perfect for bike riding.

Visit The Crommelin Native Arboretum - It is a ten-minute walk to this wonderful park with its earthy trails and labelled trees. Native birds abound and you could even spot a bowerbird or lyrebird. Koalas and other native animals are sighted here too. Why not take your lunch? There's a large grassy picnic area.

Walk to Patonga - There's a scenic but hilly walk through Brisbane Water National Park to this neighbouring village. It's only about 6k return and affords great views. The trail begins opposite the Arboretum.
