What people say

"Welcome to one of the best beaches in the entire world! Yes, Wineglass Bay Beach is truly that stunning. But you have to work for it. First, there's the hike up to the Wineglass Bay Lookout for your first glimpse of the hidden bay. Then you have to descend about 1,000 steps--it's a bit hard on the knees--down to the sand. It's totally worth it, though. The sand curves around the bay for about a mile. It's bordered by the pink-hued rocks of the Hazards on one end and low dunes in the back. While the azure water is a perfect for a swim, even if it's a bit chilly. Note: Once you fill your camera with about a million photos, you can either head back up the stairs or follow the Isthmus Track, through the dunes, toward Hazards Beach on the other western side of the Freycinet Peninsula."
