Today’s walk starts at Remarkable Rocks, arriving early well before all the crowds is a real pleasure. For your information, we miss one small 6 km section of the walk, through mallee forest from Hakea Campground to Remarkable Rocks. The granite boulders sculptured by the forces of nature have an artistic, almost surrealist feel to them. This next section is one of the best, if not the best. From Sanderson Bay, it’s back to the coast past Cape Younghusband. The coastal views are stupendous before heading off through cooler mallee and tea tree forest. Hike to spectacular Hanson Bay and your accommodation. Hanson Bay is one of the most beautiful places on the island. There’s a very safe bay or an estuary to take a swim in, and there are additional beach walks on your doorstep if you feel so inclined. Depending on the time of year, there is likely to be hardly anyone here, so in the evening it’ll feel like having your own private beach.
