If you're well prepared, Pretty Beach to Pebbly Beach walking track is an adventurous full day hike that traces the rocky coastline and beaches of northern Murramarang National Park.

Heading south from Pretty Beach, follow the coast across potentially slippery rock shelfs, which are at times underwater, and along remote pebble beaches. Make sure to check tides, swells and weather conditions before you set out as the journey requires extreme caution and is inaccessible from mid to high tide. It should not be attempted during poor weather or big ocean swells.

At Snake Bay, cool off with a swim in the clear ocean before tucking into a beachside picnic.

The walk from Snake Bay is through coastal forest with spectacular views of the ocean through the trees and with views back to Pretty Beach. The track remains on the headland with undulating hills and glimpses of the sea through spotted gum forest until you reach Pebbly Beach.
