The signpost piqued our interest; it indicated Misery Beach, Isthmus Hill, Bald Head. A short stroll from the carpark takes you to the beach, 200m approx. of pristine white sand protected by rocky headlands at each end. The vegetation surrounding the trail is fairly dense...More

This was amazing. We were the only ones on the Misery Beach. The dunes were attractive, the ocean was calm and it was really easy to walk on the beach. It was truly peaceful and the sun shone on us brightly. Wow! What a great...More

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

The water is crystal clear, calm, and the views are lovely in this bay. I wouldn't swim far out though as it apparently is known for sharks being there. It was lovely and secluded though, being far out around the point, I don't think many...More

Had this beach all to ourselves one morning on a recent visit to Albany. Lovely views across the bay, squeaky white sand, clean turquoise water - we could not have asked for more. The whole beach was sheltered (we had been driven off Little Beach...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.
