Lovely little local sheltered beach. Low tide when we arrived, quite a few people walking dogs and racing books in the sunshine.

Somewhat picturesque but you wouldn't venture out of the car it was so wet and windy. Maybe would be better in summer.

If you think the Mersey Bluff in Devonport is a little too 'commercial' and 'developed' for your tastes then move a kilometre or so west to Coles Beach where you'll find a lovely stretch of sand and a few rocks to climb around in an unspoiled setting. I have fond memories of it. It was a favourite during my early... More

Coles Beach was the first of a number of beaches we visited in Tasmania and it was very pleasant. Each beach has something unique about it and Coles Beach had a nice feel about it. You can also catch the railway museum train from a station near the beach which is an additional attraction.

Decided to go for a drive after dinner to see a little of Devonport as we are only here for one night. Accidently stumbled across Coles beach and fell in love with the serenity. It's a flat beach with very little waves, so if you are wanting to catch some waves, this beach is probably not for you. It is... More

Coles beach is where I swim every summer... it a beautiful clean beach (except for seaweed at times) the water is normally crystal clear... can be cold in the water even in summer until about the end of January but that doesn't stop people swimming before then... does get a little busy in summer but not really compared to beaches...

This is one of my hometown glories. Gorgeous at sunrise and sunset, great for families. Water can get crowded on hot days and the seaweed does come in from time to time. If you're lucky, you'll catch it on a clear-green water day. Be advised of little rips.
