Little Bay Beach

Little Bay is a secluded beach nestled between granite cliffs, just south of the headland near Trial Bay Gaol in Arakoon National Park. Pack your fishing gear for a day at the beach.

There’s the option for a leisurely lunch beneath the shade of the she-oaks at nearby Little Bay picnic area overlooking the ocean. If you’re after some exercise, try the nearby historic Monument Hill walking track.

If you’re into birdwatching, the nearby heathland is a haven for fantails, wrens and honeyeaters, while hawks, falcons and ospreys soar above the cliffs and forage along the beaches.

After all that fresh air and exercise, head to the Trial Bay Kiosk Restaurant and unwind with a delicious coffee and piece of cake. With an extensive wine list and menu featuring local produce, you might be tempted to come back for dinner.
