Cycled all the way around the island and this was the only beach that wasn't packed with people. Although this beach is small, it is nicely secluded and quiet. No shelter from the sun here though.

Such a gorgeous place to chill out on the beach and snorkel in the waters, seeing an array of fish. Its also only about 5 kms from the centre, a great bike ride along the way.

So glad you liked it. It is a favourite with us too.

Even by Rottnest standards this one is quiet. Usually sheltered from the wind, this is a little scramble down. The beach reminds me of beaches you might see in Turkey. A stark but attractive beach. There is snorkelling to be had here where you can...More
