    Shoal bay is just down the road from accommodation. It isn't patrolled but the water is very still and calm.

    Apologies but I can't answer that. We did not require the use of a safe and therefore paid no attention as to whether there was one or not. Maybe you need to contact the motel direct to obtain an answer. Cheers.
