Bittangabee Bay

"Bittangabee Bay, with its quiet little beach, is a family favourite – we come for the quiet and stay for the swimming."

A rocky enclosed bay with a small, scenic beach, Bittangabee Bay is an appealing spot to kick back and soak up spectacular coastline views. Remote without being inaccessible, it offers secluded swimming and fishing in a pristine natural environment. Bring a picnic lunch and a pair of binoculars for a spot of birdwatching and whale watching during the migration season.

Bittangabee Bay is easily accessible from Bittangabee campground, and walkers will want to try Bittangabee Bay to Green Cape walk, part of the iconic Light to Light walk. There are even nearby ruins for history buffs, and an abundance of local wildlife for the naturalists. Long-nosed bandicoots, wombats, brush-tailed possums, and lace monitors all live in the area.

For a real adventure, visit Bittangabee Bay as part of Light to Light walk, or carry in a sea kayak and paddle the clear waters.
