The scenery along the beach is more interesting than the beach itself. There are trees half submerged in the water which make a very good photo opportunity, the drive is quite pleasant and engaging. more »
Went to Fanny Cove and Sandy Cape. Basic camping at both places with long drop toilets. 4WD access to beach at Fanny Cove but not at Sandy Cape. Beautiful beaches and as usual crystal clear water. Awesome day trip or stay a night or two. National Park fees apply.
Off the beaten track; very close to nature.
