Hangover Bay

West Coast Australia

This sweep of white sand and aquamarine water makes a good picnic spot, close to the Pinnacles Desert in Nambung National Park, and with BBQs, toilets and chilly swimming (good for your hangover). Look for the access road a few hundred metres south of where Pinnacles Dr meets Indian Ocean Dr.
