To get there we turned south off the Eyre Highway at Penong with caravan in tow. At Penong we asked a local bloke what the road was like and he said "It's corrugated mate but if you travel at 60 you'll skim over the top". So we took a chance and discovered the road was smooth all the way!

Then we came to a sign indicating that the road ahead was very steep so we asked a local bloke who said he thought we would be OK with our caravan so we ventured forward and to our surprise found, after a gentle incline, a most delightful sheltered harbour. There is a shark net to create a safe swimming area, a jetty, a picnic shelter and a view to more sand dunes and cliffs. Our lunch break there was rather longer than we had planned. Cactus Beach will wait for another day.
