This is a great beach to just sit back and enjoy. Was there during the sunset and it was surreal. It's clean, undisturbed, with birds, wallabies, and wombats popping up every now and then. Perfect way to end the evening. You do need to pay...More

Very pretty spot any time of year. Lovely to view from the lookout but nicer still to stroll the pristine white sand and appreciate the turquoise water. Worth the short turn off from the highway.

Got here via the All4Adventure ATV experience, and the beaches are pure white, soft sand, with lots of character. You can get here via normal tourist "dirt roads" but at the northern end. Going in via ATV gets you to the middle / lower end,...More

Just off the well beaten tourist path into Coles Bay is a sign for Friendly Beaches; an acquaintance had recommended we turn in and have a look whilst on our adventure; and we did. The sand is so white and squeaky; the sea is so...More
