Camping at Little Bay, Horrocks WA

CAMPING AT LITTLE BAY.pngSituated on top of a limestone cliff and looking down at the beach we could see a secluded camp ground. We were driving from Port Gregory to Horrocks when we took a track off to the side to do some exploring. As we are ones who never stick to the main road we often find some awesome spots and this is how we stumbled upon Little Bay.

After exploring the town of Horrocks we headed off to find Little Bay. Dropped the tyre pressure, put her into 4wd and follow the sandy track for 4.5 kilometres until we hit the beach.

The sheltered waters of the lagoon is the perfect place to launch our kayak and let the children splash in the shallows.

To the north there are steep limestone cliffs and behind Little Bay is a large sand dune. JJ wanted to climb the dune so off we went making our way down an overgrown path to the bottom of the dune. Clearly it is a popular spot for sand boarding as there was a rope to help with the climb. The climb got my heart rate up and the view from the top was superb. We could see the boys playing on the beach and whales in the distance. Feeling blessed to witness these gentle creatures making their journey north, heading to warmer waters.

Little bay is the perfect spot to waste the day away or if you like camping then why not pitch your tent.

  1. I only like camping if it’s in a hotel! These views are stunning and there’s nothing like Mother Nature’s seaside lullaby, is there? I love listening to the sound of the sea when I go to sleep.
