Sandy Point, Dec 4th 2010

Sandy Point is located on the South East Coast of Victoria near the Wilson Prom National Park. It has many beautiful beaches - this is one of them, Waratah Bay, also known as Sandy Point Beach. It is very large, stretching over 20km. Its also relatively flat and the foreshore is immense at low tide - stretching for over 500m or more.

The area is sparsely populated - you'll find no high rise skyscrapers here. Small little cottages dot the neighborhood. We stayed at Iluka Cottage which cost us A$310 to hire the place for the long weekend. Its a self-contained unit, including kitchen and a washing machine, that can sleep 6 people. It also has a backyard veranda where you can feed the colorful Rosella parrots.

At night you can see thousands of stars. I hoped to go down to the beach and watch as the stars pivoted from heaven to horizon - unfortunately, there was a drunken lout party at the main entrance to the beach, and we dared not pass.
