Information

One of the five on the Beaches Loop Road. Entry via a sandy track through some heath. Not enough minerals in the sand to support the growth of larger trees. Constant SE winds have a pruning effect, breaking off new twigs and keeping the heath low. Sadly, even at this remote location plastic litters the beach.
