A lot of the dunes have been scoured out but what a beautiful beach. Loved the sunset here, could do with a bit of seating along it and it seemed pretty popular. Will certainly be staying here next time.

This is the closest beach to the Hideaway. Depending on wind direction , its a quiet , calm , sandy paradise for the kids to have fun. Sunset views to die for,

Nice beach for hiring some equipment and trying a water-based activity. My daughter and I tried stand-up paddle boarding. We enjoyed it.

Putney Beach on Great Keppel is one of the best beaches in the world. At high tide it is a dream. Just above it is a bar/bistro which gives you at night a great backdrop of sunset drinks. A definite must for beach lovers!

White sands, turquoise water, soft waves and not many people! What more could you ask for! Relaxing and enjoyable- there is a small clump of trees to shelter under in the mid-day sun
