Perhaps the name ‘Pretty Beach’ doesn't really apply to this area. Perhaps it should be called ‘Pretty Stupendous Beach’. Pretty Beach is pretty darn beautiful, and its surrounding beaches live up to their names too. Lobster Beach, the breaking surf of Tallow Beach and Box Head are just a walk away. Killcare Surf Beach, Maitland Bay and quaint, coastal villages like Killcare, Wagstaffe and Hardy’s Bay are not much further. Pretty Beach House is also an apt description. Here you can relax on wooded sun decks beside an inviting pool, cruise aboard the Pretty Beach launch, indulge in the cuisine of one of Australia’s finest chefs or embark on a full wilderness-encounter, bush experience. A pretty good choice.
