Over the dunes is the whitest of white sand and the most azure waters of Geordie Bay. Photographed by many, its flat, motionless ocean makes for safe swimming. A confetti of yachts spreads across the bay in summer months (there are protected, boat free swimming zones), and beachside accommodation mirrors the cove. Nearby, next to a mini-mart, find Geordie's Cafe (08/9292–5411), one of the newest and best foodie options on the island. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner,
it also offers plenty of gluten-free options. Expect to see furry quokkas looking for scraps. Amenities: toilets, showers. Best for: swimming.
