As a kid, I used to love going to a beach that had lots of rocks that I could explore and hop around on for hours. This week, I decided to see if I could rock-hop all the way from Kings Beach to Shelly Beach.
The first part was easy and fun. Once I reached the boat ramp, I could see that it was about to become a bit trickier. With my camera stashed safely away, I climbed up over the bigger rocks and easily made it to the headland.
From there it flattened out again – so out came the camera once more. As you round the headland coming towards Shelly Beach, there are some cave-like rocks with water seeping through them dripping onto the rocks below.
The whole rock hopping jaunt is only 1km - but that one kilometre packs a punch of fun and photo opportunities. I can't wait to share this fun, free activity with my family.
Recommendations 1. Wear shoes with grip 2. Go at low tide
3. Take your camera – but have a bag to put it in when you need your hands to climb over some rocks
4. Take your time to really enjoy the rock pools.
5. Go with friends or family.
