Torrent Bay

There is a shallow tidal beach at Torrent Bay. For 2 hours each side of low tide, this requires a small boat transfer to get you close to shore, and can involve wading through water up to your knees, or higher, depending on conditions. Please check the tides before you book a landing at Torrent Bay.  The small boat transfer is not suitable for people with limited mobility or balance. If you are concerned about this, please contact so we can advise a more suitable trip for you.

Park Management rules do not allow boat transfers for day walkers at Torrent Bay after midday.
