Misery Beach is a peaceful secluded beach, sheltered from the prevailing winds and swell with beautiful views of King George Sound with its rugged coast and islands. It is only about 200 metres long with pristine squeaky white sand. An impressive granite headland - part of Isthmus Hill - forms one end, while a rocky point marks the other.
On a clear day you can see the tops of the Stirling Range. I am not sure where the name comes from but as the whaling station is just a few hundred metres away, maybe it was named back in the time it was still operating, when the whale blood would wash ashore here. Today it is a beach to enjoy and contemplate life as you listen to the soothing sounds of the waves.
