80 mile beach

Hey

Anyone know 80 mile beach well? In a few weeks I’m traveling to Newman via Broome and was thinking about going to eighty mile beach. Can you drive down the length of the beach? If not, from where to where can you drive? Any other tips for this time of year would be good, camping etc I’m guessing swimming is a no go

cheers

Went in 2005.
We would not bother to go back.

Swimming is optional. Feeding the aquatic life is often mandatory.

Been their several times and if anywhere near would happily go again. Entry to the beach is at the caravan park and it is easy beach driving in both directions. It has a very good free DIY carwash. Chris

What about the full length of it? Not just the part at the caravan park

Not sure how far you can go,but many keen fisher-folk go far away from the caravan park on quads. You'd want to enquire about turtle nesting before driving though.

I drove onto the beach and turned right and drove for about 20ks to the creek that comes out there. We fished unsusessfullly for an hr then followed a track back inland along the creek for a few ks. It whinds thru scrub and salt flat and eventually you are able to cross it and it follows a fence line on the otherside of the creek. Thats as far as we went. Looked to be going back to the beach. It would be possible to camp there in a Roof top tent but not very attractive as a campsite. Not sure how legal it would be as l don't know who owns the land. Got a few sandfly bites when we got out and they were bad. Lasted weeks scratching.
Did not turn left from the C P so don't know about that way. There is a great free car wash just as you come off the beach. You don't have to be a customer of the C P to access the beach.
The sunsets are magnificent, the C P is well set out with great grassy bays under trees and good amenities but you pay. It was $40 per night when we where there in August 2020. The place was almost full. Hope this helps.
