Located between Horseshoe Bay and Rose Bay, Murray Bay is a beautiful tropical beach complete with coconut trees and fringing reef. Access to the secluded beach is solely down a narrow track or via the Cape Edgecumbe walking trail. It is a great beach for those looking for a quiet, private place to enjoy the tropical climate and impressive island views. With views of the Cape's impressive granite boulders and offshore islands, the outlook is incredible and is also a prime spot for whale watching during Winter. Murray Bay is a favourite for photographers and provides excellent snorkelling, diving and fishing. The beach is pet friendly and perfect for families.
