Baci Viewpoint

Central East Coast

On a bend of Hwy 11, this small roadside rest stop has what is arguably the most beautiful panorama of the whole east coast. Leafy branches frame the perfect view down across Jici Bay, with the curving beach backed by further mountains and bays that melt into a misty infinity.

For cyclists, this is the summit of the longest climb on Hwy 11.
