Vesteys Beach is located within the city of Darwin on the northern side of Bullocky Point, only a few hundred metres away on the other side of Darwin High School hill. At one end of Vesteys Beash is Darwin Ski Club and the Museum and Art Gallery NT (MAGNT), and on the other side is Darwin Sailing Club and Darwin Trailer Boat Club.
Vesteys Beach is a gently curving 2.2 km long beach, larger than the famous Mindil Beach, but unfortunately not as well known. Vesteys Beach is usually a quiet place, unless it is a windy day than you can find a lot of sailing boats around, since it is home to Darwin Sailing Club. There are two large boat ramps crossing the beach and you can find lots of boats moored off the northern half of the beach.
During certain times of the year sharks, box jellyfish, and crocodiles can inhabit the waters and swimming is not recommended at these times. But you still can find lot of things to do. Sedimentary rocks can be seen scattered around the beach. You can see some seashells stuck together to form the big rock below. You can also find lots of hermit crabs carrying different kinds of seashells on their back.
Up from the beach there is small playground, picnic tables, BBQ, a drinking water fountain and also a public toilet. You can find plenty of parking area here. Lots of shady green area around the beach are home for various kinds of birds. You can reach Vesteys Beach on bike since there is bike track around.
