Rocks border its northern and southern entrances, making for great climbing and photography, with Lion Rock the king of them all. You can walk north from Pambula Beach to Merimbula (6km) or walk a few hundred metres around the rocks to the Pambula River Mouth.
This beach and its neighbours are enormously popular in summer, so be prepared to park the car on Coraki Drive and walk down through Lion Park. The park has a large shelter with benches, 4 free gas barbecues, 7 picnic tables, amenities, beachside shower and viewing platform – and it’s dog friendly.
From Pambula Village, take Pambula Beach Road, then right to Coraki Drive, keeping the Pambula Surf Life Saving Club on your left. Turn left at the sign for Lions Park.
