The beachfront location makes it an ideal spot for social gatherings, birthday parties and weddings, where the spacious outdoor area provides guests with a wide range of options. The outdoor area has a large BBQ area, a dining setting and a beachfront viewing platform. The large open lawn offers great opportunities for larger gatherings, where there is plenty of space for setting up marques, a stage and external caterers to serve food.

The area around The Shores Holiday Apartments is home to a wide range of flora and fauna, where humpback whales are often spotted passing the Blacks Beach. It is also home to many bird species, both migratory and non-migratory. The Blacks Beach is also one of the most important turtle nesting and hatching spots in the region, and guests can, under supervision, assist in relocating turtle eggs away from the beach.
