Friendly Beaches, Coles Bay

4.5
#1 of 9 in Beaches in Glamorgan-Spring Bay
Beach · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
At Friendly Beaches, stroll down the stretch of white soft sand soaking in the views of granite rock formations and turquoise water. This pristine beach can be accessed via a boardwalk that borders a coastal nature reserve, which is home to the Tasmanian devil, a threatened species and one of the island's few native mammals living in the heathlands. The beach is unpatrolled, so be careful if you decide to go surfing or fishing. Plan my trip to Coles Bay with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
