South of Contos Beach

These were taken mid February. This beach is rarely visited, as there is no vehicle access. The Cape to Cape Trail swings inland at this point to go through the Boranup Forest, so you don’t even meet the usual hikers on the beach. To get to the beach you can either walk from Hamelin Bay (a long way), or park a car in the Boranup Forest and follow a track several kilometres to the beach, or walk south from Contos beach. We parked one car in the forest, and one at Contos so that we didn’t have to back track.  The surf that day created some great waves that broke just before they hit the beach.
