Cape Leveque - I wish I stayed there more
I had seen pictures of Cape Leveque surfing the net and decided I must see it in my trip to Kimberley. We spent there 2 nights, 1 and a half day.
We had booked well in advance a powered site at Kooljaman's campground. We found the small campground very clean and nice. We had site n.13, nicely in the shade. We loved the beautiful beach on the east. When we got there it was empty. Such a wonderful place all to ourselves...
We took a very long walk taking in the blue of the sky and ocean and the different shades of the sand. The water was warm. With low tide we found it a little bit difficult to get into the water because of the rocks.
We also loved the west side with its beautiful sunset and colors. We took our chairs, beer and chips and savoured every moment. (One question, why they recommend not to swim there? We forgot to ask and the water was just as beautiful).
We also took a scenic flight over the Buccaneer Archipelago. It was a gorgeous scenery. Everything was perfect.
I wish we had stayed more. I feel it is one of those places were you really realize how wonderful our planet is. Just sit, watch and enjoy. It is worth the trip.
