About Breakwater Motel

Clean and well-appointed, many of the suites and studios at Breakwater Motel have sea views. All layouts have air conditioning and heat pumps plus kitchen units and dining areas. Select layouts offer underfloor heating.

Car parking is complimentary here, but for those eager to make the most of their time in the region, this motel also offers assistance with local tourism itineraries.
