Friendly Beaches

  • by

Forming the northern part of the Freycinet National Park, the Friendly Beaches are a long stretch of white sand beaches with beautiful scenic views, contrasting the green crystal clear water of the Tasman Sea.

The beaches offer very pleasant walks exploring the beach and foreshore scrub and are just a few minutes from the small fishing village of Coles Bay.  Dolphin pods have been known to use the beaches and can be seen at times from the shore. 

Occasional surfers use the beach although the beaches along this stretch of coastline are unpatrolled and swimming is not advised.

The long white beaches with the peaks of The Hazards and Mount Freycinet on the Freycinet Peninsula in the background.

Toilets can be found at car park near the park entrance for beaches.

A bush camping area (limited fazilities and no water) is found to the northern end of the beaches at Isaacs Point.
