The best beaches on the Cape
Back Beach at Middle Lagoon
On a whim we explored the Dampier Peninsula heading up the Cape Leveque Road. When we stopped at Beagle Bay for lunch one of the locals recommended we check out Middle Lagoon. So we headed the extra 50 or so kms up and were simply blown away.
We rearranged the rest of our travel plans and spent the last few days in cabin 5 at Natures Hideaway right on the lagoon. We were literally the only people there and had both the main lagoon and the equally beautiful Back Beach all to ourselves.
We caught fish on a hand line by wading into waist deep water. As someone once said "do yourself a favour" and if you are ever on the road to the Cape drop into Middle Lagoon, you won't regret it!
Oh, and while you're out that way drop into Mungets and check the spectacular view there. Both these place are on Aboriginal land so respect their wishes and ask permission before entering.
