Cressy Beach

Cressy Beach
About five kilometres south of Swansea, on the Great Eastern Drive, look for the signs to Cressy Beach and pull off the highway into the little circular car park and picnic area here. A short stroll along the sandy walking trail leads to the 500-metre-long beach, part of a small coastal reserve. This beach has a different character to Spiky Beach, with a long stretch of sugary sand to stroll along, fantastic views of the Freycinet coast and an ocean that can roll small, but surfable, waves onto the beach. This is a wonderful spot to take a longer walk and do some beachcombing or unfurl a towel and watch the seabirds soaring over the water.
