Stunning, pure water

Absolutely stunning. Swam in the most lovely clear water and even used the sand to body scrub. First stop on the Kingfisher Resort Beauty spots tour and didn't disappoint.

Purest water with white sand - like icing sugar fringing ink diluted at the edges - feels weird swimming over the dark as if some creatures are underneath

Envious of those who took advantage of a swim in this lake while on a Beauty Spot tour. The water is so clear - filtered by the sand. Enjoyed sitting on the sand having afternoon tea supplied by the tour company.

This lake has some cleansing properties, particularly good for the skin & cleaning jewelry. The beach is a pristine white, change rooms are provided. Well worth the visit, usually on the tour bus

It was pooring quite heavily when arriving at the beach (had to protect my camera) but got the chance to take pics of an empty beach this way 😁 Very nice place. Big enough to fit some tour crowds and still vry beautiful.

Hard to reach without a four wheel drive or via a tour, but we'll worthwhile. Clear freshwater lake, white sand beach, all next to nature

A true beauty spot where the contrast between the white sand and the blues of the lake have to be seen to be believed. Even better when complaining bogans are not around. There water is refreshing (swam here in the past) but too cold on this visit.

A bit cold for a dip at this time of the year. Beautiful and very informative talk from our guide about how it was formed.
