Thistle Cove, Esperance

5.0
#1 of 7 in Wildlife in 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.
