Fortescue Bay was the finishing point for our 3 Capes Track adventure and it was indeed a fitting end with sparkling blue waters and white sand the icing on the cake. With a small shop selling basics (who needs more than coffee, ice cream, milk...More

Beautiful drive ( about 14km) to the Bouviac Bay beach and the camp ground. Stunning natural scenery and forest. Crystal clear waters and pristine beaches. Well worth the drive.

After 4 days trekking the Three Capes trail it was magic coming across this pristine white bay beach. The campground that borders it looked great too.

You drive down a 14 km dirt road to access Fortescue Bay and it is pristine and unspoiled with Eucalyptus forests all around and a wide beach with trails at each end. Rustic National Park camping.

We have been so blessed to have had great weather when we went to Fortescue Bay. Would recommend to get out and see as much as you can.
