What a stunning little beach where you can walk right to the wall of the sheer cliff towering above you, it has great views and is a quiet place to relax for awhile and take a few photo's , a lovely spot.

As with most of our trip, it was way to cold and windy to swim (bummer) but this beach was absolutely magnificent. It was totally empty when we got there and was so clean, isolated, blue, and calm. If it was sunny we would have...More

This is a lovely beach with few people as it is more remote but still within 15km of Albany. Choose the correct wind and you will be sheltered with fantastic blue and clear pristine water. It is not good on a big swell. Try fishing...More

This is such a beautiful beach tucked away at the end of Frenchmans Bay. There is a small bit of well formed gravel road right at the end and a short walk down to the beach from the carpark. It is worth the effort.

Went down to Misery Beach after we had done the Whale Station. if we had found this beach in the morning and it had been warmer we probably wouldn't have explored Albany as we did. Just beautiful
