  • camp cove beach - stroll from Watson’s bay then, ahhh, nice to walk to the end of the beach and grab a juice and coffee before or after swim. topless bathing seems okay here and water is calm, no surf...  more »
  • It was early summer when I came here before, but this time I visited in early autumn. It was a little cool, but there were still a few people swimming. The beach is as white as ever, and the water is very beautiful. There is no smell of the sea at all. It is a trail and you can go to the lighthouse at the tip.

  • A beautiful little cove tucked away from the tourists. Beautiful colors and easy to walk to from the ferry.
  • Nice beach, can get crowded and parking can sometimes be an issue. I go there to scuba dive as it is protected from most weather and makes a great night dive location.
