Known to locals as “the secret beach” we just have to spill the beans on this one. Why is it a secret? We’re guessing it’s the accessibility that keeps it a hidden gem. The beach itself isn’t visible from the parking and the only way to get down to the beach is via a 500m walk alongside a golf course. Which is why not many people actually even know about this spot!
Slightly down from the golf course entrance on Crooked River Road is a small parking bay from which you can park and start the walk down on your left. The walk itself is very pleasant. The rolling greenery, trees and a few cows around you felt like you were no where near a beach although it was right in front of us.
Once you reach the beach there’s a small path leading down on to it – mid center. What a BEAUTY. There’s something about lush green hills and BAM a beach! Gets me every time. I was saying to Jackie it felt like somewhere in Scotland or New Zealand. Golden brown sand and wide open waves. Just glorious. Ideal for those who value isolation over convenience!
