Marfells Beach

Marfells Beach

Marfells Beach is a remote and lesser-known place to camp and explore. Access is off State Highway 1 along from Marfells Beach Road. Drive past the east side of Lake Grassmere towards the southeast end of Clifford Bay. The area in front of the DOC campground is a sandy surf beach. Heading east towards Mussel Point, the beach changes to a series of stony and rocky platforms below a cliff. The most interesting feature is the coating of bright red seaweed that is exposed as the tide goes out, plus the rock pools.

The sealed road runs out about half way along the beach. There is a 4WD / walking track that continues over the rocky section, below the cliff to Mussel Point. This is just above the high tide line. You can then continue on along the next beach to Cape Campbell and its lighthouse by foot or 4WD (at low tide). Allow around 5 to 6 hours to walk to Cape Campbell and back from the end of the sealed road.
