This is an aptly named spot with lawns and a good picnic spot. You can take a walk down to the beach where there are lots of seashells to collect.

This is a pretty spot to visit, but I wouldn’t swim here! The tidal flow through the channel is amazing to watch. Try to stay for a while or come a few times to see it at different tide times.

What a wonderful place to chill out. We did some fishing and were lucky enough to see some horses being taken for a swim. Very pretty spot 😎Lyn M

It is set back from a large tidal beach and sand dunes and has some mangrove and is quite a pretty, as its name implies sea water pool st in the sand dunes. There is a small park attached and signs indicating crocodiles live there.

We stopped at Pretty Pool for a picnic lunch. It’s a nice location - nothing special but a pleasant outlook over the water and sand dunes.

This was recommended and we decided to drive there and have lunch. We were extremely disappointed in that there was no parking for our caravan and also we're still looking for the Pretty Pool.

A nice place to stop and enjoy the views along the beach. It is a clothing optional beach, so it was nice to walk along the beach uninhabited. I was the only person there, so it’s not busy by any means. Do take thongs as...More
