First and foremost beaches are associated with swimming and sunbathing. Quite a few of them are scenic or outstanding at a special time. Share your favorite beach which you already experienced.
The State Park is popular for the 2 miles long beach but not crowded due to a one-mile walk to get there. The gate is open from sunrise until half an hour after sunset.
The entire 2 miles beach is only accessible at low tide. Watch the tide and don’t get trapped between rocky outcrops.
The summer is the foggiest season. Clearer skies and the best time for a visit are September and October followed by April and May.
It’s a moderate cool coastal climate with moist air. The average temperature is between 50 to 65°F year-round. Most of the precipitation occurs from October to April with up to 50 inch / 1270 mm. Fog happens between May and October usually from evening until late morning. If it’s hot in the backcountry, the fog might stay until the afternoon.
The gray whales migrate from Alaska to Baja California and can be spotted during mid- December and February. And again on their northward migration with their new born calves from February to May.
Bolonia Beach and the shifting dune are worth a visit despite the season.
It’s a popular beach with Spanish tourists in summer and day trippers on Sundays. During the rest of the year and at weekdays it’s less busy. Morning and evening only a few people are on the beach and dune even in summer.
At midday, the sunlight is perfect for a good shot of the shifting dune. The golden hour in the afternoon/evening is also a good option for brilliant pics. Sunsets are awesome, but some of the car parks close at 9 p.m.
This marvelous beach is still a hidden gem and mostly the Spanish visit it. Due to the limited parking and accessibility, it can’t get crowded.
Between high- and low tide you can swim in the lagoon. At high tide, the beach is small, and at low tide, the lagoon disappears.
This hike can be done the entire year. Anyhow, it's more fun on a sunny day to enjoy the picturesque fiery granite rocks on white sandy beaches and a blue sea. Best time for a perfect shot with these mesmerizing rocks is after midday. In addition, more rocks are visible and accessible at low tide. Due to the remote location and the gravel road at the southern end of the park we didn't meet any person. Tide times Bay of Fires
From November to March pleasant temperatures mostly above 20°C. In the winter, most days with single-digit temperatures. Most precipitation during winter, although the highest amount of rain occurs in November. The driest months are January to March. Anyhow, the eastern part of Tasmania experiences less rain. The wind can be pretty chilly even in the summer.
Due to the remote location and basic facilities at the campgrounds, it’s only crowded during Australian school holidays. We camped here in November 2016, and there was just one more tent.
The New Chums Beach is still a hidden gem. There isn't any road to the beach or cafe just pure nature. It's better to come 2 hours after high tide and around low tide here. During high tide, you may either get wet feet when reaching the beach, the beach is pretty small or you are blocked when you want to leave. It depends on the level of the high tide, the wind, and the surf.
Coromandel is a year-round destination with a mild climate. The precipitation on the Coromandel peninsula is sometimes significant even in summer.
