Protected from the prevailing winds, this little cove is a firm Rottnest favourite - don't expect to have it to yourself. But its a lovely last stop on a cycle round the island before hitting the settlement. Have a swim etc.

Amazing time had on the island. This is a definite must do by any tourist or local visiting Perth. The many bays are each beautiful on there own. Hire a bike and see the whole island! Just amazing

Lovely little cove, clear waters, white sands, too cold to swim when we were there but nice to sunbathe, very sheltered. You won't be able to stop taking photos here and the rest of the island.

My partner surprised me by taking me here while we were in Perth. This was probably the easier of the beaches to get to by bike, and we arrived early (by ferry from Fremantle), so we had the beach to ourselves! Absolutely beautiful spot with...More
