Cemetery Beach is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, who are looking for a more tranquil, less crowded beach experience than typically found on Seven Mile. Soft white sand (of course), and shady Seagrape trees await you after the brief walk along the walled edge of the cemetery, which gives the beach its name.

Renowned as a great spot for snorkelling, there is a reef located in about 30ft of water, at a distance of about a 6-minute swim offshore. Watch out for the current though as it can be strong in this area, but proficient swimmers should be fine. You can see a variety of marine life, including colourful fish, coral reefs, and even sea turtles. It is quite a secluded and quiet beach so there isn't other watersports going on, although you may see a paddlebaorder pass by from time to time.

Additional Information

The beach is relatively small and there are no immediate facilities, but there are public restrooms, an outside shower and several parking spaces, all located across the street. Whilst Foster's supermarket and other stores are a few minutes drive away for refreshments, be sure to bring everything you need, such as water, snacks, sunscreen, and towels if you want to enjoy an uninterrupted day. Please be respectful of the cemetery that is located behind the beach.

Cemetery Beach has a lot of character and is perfect for chilling out in a picturesque spot. Many local photographers have photoshoots here, either in the early morning or evening.
