State of Tasmania Off The Beaten Path: 55 reviews and 170 photos
Tempting as they are, Tasmania's east coast beaches can be a bit daunting when it comes to actually putting your foot in it.
We're talking cold here. In winter, very bloody cold! That is, unless a warm current sneaks in somewhere.
Let this not detract however from their beauty and the possibility of squeaking the sand between your toes and feeling your cares waft away on a zephyr of an offshore breeze.
I arrived at this scene and was overwhelmed by the crowd........there wasn't any. In fact, as far as I could see in either direction no person or animal disturbed the sands Still, that's what you come to expect in Tasmania.
From memory you do down Hermitage Road, and you'll know it when you see four letter boxes at the intersection. It's between Swansea and Triabunna.
The next time I went down there over a decade later there were some surfers and another vehicle in the small carpark. It was still lovely but not quite as good as when I first viewed and the offshore winds were playing across the surface.
