Observatory Beach

A headland a bit farther along the beach is Observatory Point and the beach here is very protected (even from the sun). This is called Observatory Point because the island just offshore is Observatory island.

The Twilight Beach Road is one long stretch of beaches. This one is called the Fourth Beach for some reason or other.

More Beaches along the Twilight Beach Road

As the day got later and the sun lower, the beaches began to take on a different character. A bit further along the Twilight Beach Road from West Beach, we continue to find beautiful places.

West Beach, Esperance

As the day was getting on, we left Cape Le Grande and headed back to Esperance. There is a nice scenic drive along the beaches here and we took this to see what we could see. There were indeed some excellent beaches. the sand was not the snow-color we saw on Cape Le Grande, but it was beautiful nonetheless.

Hellfire Bay

We drove around to yet another of the magnificent beaches here a Cape Le Grande, Hellfire Beach. The name seems to be related to the sighting of St.Elmo's fire here by some early sailors.

The stop at Lucky Bay was our first encounter with the blindingly white sand found on the beaches here.

Thistle Cove

After our visit to the modern marvel of WA's Stonehenge (!?), we continued on the Cape Le Grande. Here we found some exquisite beach and great scenery. Our first stop was Thistle Cove.
