Where is it?
60km east of Esperance, in Cape Le Grande National Park
How to see it for yourself?
Hellfire Bay Beach is the easternmost beach on the 15km-long Coastal Track and takes 2.5 hours of hard walking. The easiest option is taking the Merrivale Road out of Esperance. Turn right onto Cape Le Grande Road and left onto Lucky Bay Road. Hellfire Bay is the first beach you come to, opposite Frenchman’s Peak. There’s also a 4WD trail from Esperance to Le Grande Beach.
Why I love it?
“Hellfire Bay has the most beautiful aquamarine water edged with white, fine squeaky sand. It’s my favourite beach in Australia.” – Heather Gee
