Long Beach in Sandy Bay is a popular tourist spot, but if you keep walking around the coast you’ll find a strip that is kept under the radar!
4. Hinsby Beach
Just next to Taroona Beach is the steep and narrow Hinsby Beach. This one isn’t too much of a secret, but it’s not a busy beach so you’ll enjoy it without the crowds! To access this secret Hobart beach, you’ll need to park in Hinsby Street and walk down a steep path to the beach.
5. Conningham Beach
The picturesque Conningham Beach, half an hour from Hobart, is surrounded by bush and sparkling blue water. The row of boatsheds at either end of the beach add extra charm to this dreamy place. In our opinion, it’s one of the most underrated secret beaches near Hobart.
So Cockle Creek sits on Recherche Bay and is a bonus sixth beach!
