St Martins Bay Beach

St Martin’s Bay Beach is a stretch of multiple bays and coves split by some rock outcrops, great sand backed by sand dunes. You have from the south Wine Cove, Great Bay, Little Bay and The Cove beaches. At the northern point, you have a sandbar that leads from The Cove to White Island. Out in the bay, you have a few rocks, Little Merrick Ledge, Great Merrick Ledge and Anthony.

This is an unspoilt part of the St Martin’s coast which due to the sheltered beach is great for swimming and snorkelling, although you will not find any facilities.

St Martins Bay Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
