Svendsens Beach is just amazing. I visited by myself in October 13 and found exactly what I was looking for - a quiet absolutely picturesque and unspoilt part of our beautiful country (friends wanted me to go to Bali, but I resisted and chose this place instead and aren't I pleased that I did!). The retreat is so well set up and caters for very small groups at any one time...which is great for a peaceful getaway. The owners are beautiful people who make you feel at home and provide you with great company (if you want it) and add special little touches like moon gazing through Carl's telescope on beautiful clear nights. I just love love love this place and have fallen in love with it...I will definitely be back to enjoy more snorkelling, more bushwalking and more relaxing.
