A beach I always need to sit on when visiting Rotto. The water is crystal clear and very safe to swim!

This almost private, secluded small beach will match any small beach in any country. It is sheltered from the afternoon sea breezes, has crystal clear, aquamarine waters and is ideal for sharing a nice cold wbite wine for a sundowner.

The beach itself is just beautiful and secluded. The water was absolutely freezing but we got used to it as soon as we went under! It is small and there were only a handful of people which was great.

We have always loved this swimming/ snorkelling spot. Get there early as it crowds up in summer holidays and there is not a lot of room. You can walk there from Geordie/ Longreach but a bike is best.

There are a few beaches closer to town so most people end up stopping at those ones... but just keep going until you make it to this one! Its a bit quieter. Perfect for relaxing or snorkeling!
