Beautiful view

Vivonne Bay is worth the visit off the beaten track, beautiful white sand and the view is simply wonderful.

This was our first stop on the first of two days of our island tour - for a 'picnic' of morning coffee with a Lamington on the pier. What an amazing setting for this novel experience.

We stayed here for 5 days, it is on the south coast and the middle of the island. If you into quiet solitude, this is the place. No food or drink close by at the present time. Closest is Seal Bay Cafe. No gas stations either at the p[resent time.

This is a gorgeous beach. Scenic and very peaceful, highly recommend a visit! We also went a short distance further, to the Vivonne Bay jetty, which has a lovely view back onto the beach.

Came to spend a few hours at this beach having read that it had at some point been awarded the title of Australia's best beach. Small car park at the end of the road but still plenty of space. Wide expanse of sand a short distance away and the winds on the day we visited meant good surf and there... More

A great beach close to the national parks. So the water is clean and we saw a seal, curiously looking at the people in the water

My wife and I along with our 16month old visited Vivonne Bay for an afternoon at the beach! There was a lot of sea weed on the beach although down the opposite end to the car park and boat ramp was a nice clear area! Some people climb over the rocks and there is further beach on the other side!... More

This beach is worth a look at. Beautiful sand and crystal water. Kids loved boogie boarding in the waves.

Wouldn't miss this spot! It would be great to watch the sunset there but we were staying quite far away and driving at night gets tricky.
