A beautiful area with lots of campsites along the way! All of which are a great spot for a night! On our trip we looked at most of the sites and most of them had filled up in the early afternoon!

I am glad that I went there despite the long drive. Water is very clear and it is the reason why such plants grow on these rocks. A pity that we couldn't go round the whole bay. But as a city dweller, I was fascinated by the beauty of nature.

This place smashed my expectations. Pristine waters, whitest of white sand, free camps right on the beach. Simply wonderful.

Although this place is headed Bay of Fires, Binalong Bay is the first part you come to when travelling from St Helens. The beach at Binalong Bay is fabulous with white sand and would be ideal for all the family. At one end a stream is blocked by the sand, there is a boat launching area and further on a... More

We were there on a rather cold day but it was still worth a stop and look. As others have said the walk to the beach is short and what a spectacular view. The rocks are covered with red algae? and look amazing. It's fun to clamber up and over the rocks or just have a sit on the beach... More

This would be absolutely amazing in the summer time. We visited in autumn so it was too cold to swim, but I would have loved to all the same. The red rocks are nothing like I've ever seen before. Spend some time climbing and jumping on the rocks and enjoying the views and the lovely sea breeze.

Where else can you feel extra fine white sand with your toes? The beach is amazing and the kids loved it. Make sure you go further around to walk on the orange stained rocks. Overall a great place to visit as a family but will be romantic for couples!

Free camps all with beach access so making it a very busy place. We stopped late in the day so had to make do with not the best spot after checking all the camps out. But plenty of beach of everyone. Beautiful scenery, amazing orange (lichen) coloured rocks. Could easily relax here for a week and go fishing and swimming.
