How’s the serenity! If you prefer hidden to hotspot and don’t mind a bit of trek to get there, these remote stretches of sand are heavenly.
Myall Beach, Cape Tribulation
World heritage rainforest meets world heritage reef on a pristine Queensland beach, accessed by a short walk... or horseback!
Whites Beach, Byron Bay
A dirt road, lack of parking and facilities and tricky access through bush ensure this idyllic Broken Head, NSW, beach, with its aquamarine waters, is off the tourist trail.
Squeaky Beach, Wilsons Promontory
It’s the round quartz grains of sand that create the sound that gives this Victorian place its cute name. Stay for sunset over the granite boulders.
Store Beach, Sydney
A breeding ground for little penguins (aka fairy penguins), this secluded harbour spot near Manly in the NSW capital is only accessible by boat or kayak.
