Conspicuous Cliff - Walpole Wilderness

Conspicuous Beach is a beautiful unspoilt surf beach 20 minutes drive from Walpole on the south coast of Western Australia. It's one of only 3 places along the Walpole Coast that's accessible to 2WD vehicles.  Access to Conspicuous Cliff Beach is via a boardwalk, small stairway, and a walk across the shallow waterway emptying into the ocean.  Great excuse to take of the shoes and walk barefooted through the sand and breathe in the ocean air.  This is what holidays on the South Coast are all about.  We had the whole beach to ourselves, surrounded by beauty and breathtaking views,   A beautiful way to spend the last couple of hours of our last day.  If you are travelling to albany via Walpole it is worth taking a small detour to visit Conspicious Cliffs and Beach.

The beach is named for the small, yet indeed quite conspicuous, limestone cliff perched atop a tall, steep hill that towers over the beach.

Then we saw more stairs and just couldn't resist climbing to the very top.  The views were quite spectacular and the wind almost blew us away.
