A spectacular seaside hamlet with an iconic lighthouse
Let the looming Split Point Lighthouse be your guide as you wander around town. Built in 1891 and perched on cliffs 70 metres above sea level, the lighthouse is the subject of local ghost stories and maritime legends. Take a tour to learn more about the region’s past and enjoy sweeping views of the Eagle Rock Marine Sanctuary.
Sand and surf
Travel a few kilometres west to the main surf beach of Fairhaven, which is patrolled through the summer months. Bust out the surfboard, enjoy a swim with the kids, or venture into the nearby coves of Sandy Gully and Step Beach where you can explore the rock pools or try a spot of snorkelling. Inlet beach, with its grassy slopes and picnic area is perfect for those with little kids, although the beach is not patrolled.
