From the car park there's a short section of single track that crosses a stream on a swing bridge and shortly after joins a 4WD track. Turn right, follow this for a few hundred metres and then branch off again following the signed single track trail through gorgeous bush all the way to the beach. Take time to explore this stunning west coast stretch of sand and rocks before retracing your steps back to the car park.
