    Clifton Beach

    Directions: (from Hobart) Tasman Highway, South Arm Highway, South Arm Road, Clifton Beach Road.

    Map: http://maps.google.com.au/maps?q=Clifton+Beach,+Hobart+Tasmania+7020&hl=en&sll=-25.335448,135.745076&sspn=54.469558,79.013672&vpsrc=0&hnear=Clifton+Beach+Tasmania&t=p&z=14

    Access: 100% bitumen, all vehicles. Carparking is available.

    Distance and time from Hobart: 30km, 30-40mins

    Description: A long, sandy beach aligned east/west with rocky headlands at each end. Access to the first secluded bay at the western end is easy (this may not be possible at high tide). Access to the second bay is a lot more difficult with a very short but steep section of rock scrambling required. Significant care should be exercised if attempting to reach the second bay.

    The eastern headland (Cape Deslacs) consists of a fairly sheer cliff. There is a path at the end of the beach that takes you to the top of the eastern headland where you can also get some good sunrise shots.

    The western end receives unobstructed sunrise light from early September through to late March. The eastern end of the beach is in shadow in the morning but does receive evening light. The swell at Clifton Beach can be quite heavy, and is probably one of the best locations for swell in the Hobart vicinity. Because of this, care should be exercised at all times when taking shots on the headland.

    Features: Sunrise, surfing, sand dunes, cliffs, surf life savers (in summer only).

    Security: The nearest police are about 20 kms away, and this has been used to advantage by thieves. Owners return to their vehicles to find windows broken and possessions stolen. Do not leave anything in your car if you park at any of the beaches in the South Arm area. This has been an ongoing issue in the area for years.

    Another thing to be aware of. The nearest police are about 20 kms away, and this has been used to advantage by thieves. Owners return to their vehicles to find windows broken and possessions stolen. Do not leave anything in your car if you park at any of the beaches in the South Arm area. This has been an ongoing issue in the area for years.

    A man that’s lived a quiet uneventful life dies peacefully in his sleep but a man that’s lived an exciting life goes to his grave shouting “man that was one hell of a fun journey”

    True, but being given the knowledge is better than suffering the consequences, and finding out afterwards that others knew about it, but no one warned you.
