nothing out ther , some camping sites. no showering or toilet facilities. also lots of mangroves and not much shelter to hide in with the wind that is around here at the moment.also could be busy with grey nomads staying there as karratha caravan parks are full. cheers pilbara60

Believe it's called 'Cleaverville beach'

I stayed there for about 2 months many years ago, there was 162 people camped there when the 1999 Aussie Census was done.

There were two distinct areas, the generator users were all situated in 'Honda Valley' and everyone else was living on the general beach area to the south.

We used to go up to Rowburn for water and for food went down to Karatha.

Fish and crabs were plentiful in the 'creek' to the south of the beach.

Hi Rona,

Cleaverville Beach as already described is a very barren stretch of coast which does cop wind and sandflies.
Recently the Shire of Roebourne have placed rules on camping there which include a compulsory chem toilet and only a set stay time before being moved on. I also believe the ranger charges $5/per/nt.

I lived in Roebourne for years and never saw the appeal as most people camped there because it was free. That attraction is now gone.
