Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Martha Lavinia beach - named for a shipwreck, what else would you expect on King Island? - is a breathtaking stretch of golden sand on KI's relatively isolated NE coast. It is renowned for having a great surf break but there was nothing happening when we visited, very calm conditions. It was also completely deserted ... not a soul in either direction for miles. It is a long, long way from Bondi!

Martha Lavinia beach is an isolated spot on the east coast of King Island that was named after the schooner Martha Lavinia that struck a reef in 1871. It is located approximately 12 klms down a fairly good gravel road (a good number of the roads on King Island are gravel) from the turnoff at Egg Lagoon on the main Currie - Wickham road. You pass the turnoff to Penny’s Lagoon along the way.

This is a beautiful spot and not as rugged or as wild looking as the west coast. Nevertheless I would not go swimming here as there appeared to be some very strong currents. It is though a popular surfing spot.

There were no facilities here.

One of the less rugged beaches on King Island - beautiful, peaceful and nice surf. Also has sand dunes.

What can I say? Five of us went to look at this beach. We started following a sign saying Martha Lavinia beach, expecting it to be close. There was no mileage on the sign. We drove and drove in our hired car down a road which became worse and worse, full of potholes and with muddy ridges, and eventually reached a sign which said “4WD only” - we had travelled a great distance to discover this. Why don’t signs on King Island give you some idea of distance and the type of road to be travelled, and the type of vehicle to travel in? Very disappointed not to view this amazing beach.

A gem off the beaten path, well worth a drive. Very isolated and unspoiled but make sure you are very aware of the environment and your own beach safety. A pristine wonder.

This beach stretches for several km south of the parking spot. Utterly isolated, very safe and clean and unspoiled.

Definitely suits the "need to be alone" demographic.

We are not surfers, but the surf break is apparently legendary.

However, we were limited to a very quick swim - the march flies (aka horse flies) attacked in a swarm like I have never experienced. Locals recommend "Bushman" spray or similar, and I would add - spray yourself and your car before opening the doors.
