Thistle Cove, Esperance
Thistle Cove is best known for its intriguingly sculpted granite boulders, including a "whistling" rock that captures the sound of the wind. This secluded small bay features a sandy beach fringed by sloping granite rocks and backed by freshwater wetlands. In addition to swimming, snorkeling, diving, and surfing, visitors often go for a bushwalk to the nearby Lucky Bay, which provides rewarding views over rugged headlands sloping steeply into the ocean. Amenities include a picnic table. Add Thistle Cove to your Esperance travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Esperance tour itinerary planner.
Thistle Cove Reviews
Loved this area and it is brimming with wildlife too. Good photo opportunities and nice rock walking. Parking available also more »
Ich bin nicht zum Strand sondern hab es mir nur vom Whistling Stone aus angesehen. Ist auf alle Fälle ruhiger als Lucky Bay. more »I'm not going to the beach, I just looked at it from Whistling Stone. Is definitely quieter than Lucky Bay.
That was a really great natural beauty for someone not to miss in Cape Grande National Park.
Breath taking place.
