A remote beach in the southern section of Ben Boyd National Park, ‘Saltwater’ is bordered by two intermittently closing creeks and their small lagoons.
Saltwater Creek, the northern estuary, is a secluded place for a kayak or SUP, while the beach is exposed to easterly swells.
It’s a popular stopover for walkers on the Light to Light Walk between Boyd Tower and Green Cape Light Station. There are toilets, picnic tables, barbecues and an intimate camp ground with 15 sites. Bookings are encouraged, and can be secured online.
