Silica Beach

03 05 09 001-Edit-Edit
These are a couple of shots of a unique little spot in the wilderness. Comprised of nearly pure silica, it’s like the Whitehaven of the Kimberley but smaller!
As the water is reasonably clear it is one of very few places that it is relatively safe to swim in saltwater and the rock formations surrounding it are amazing.
Even the wildlife likes it, we pulled up one day to find a small croc getting a suntan. He disappeared mumbling “Bloody tourists….!”

  1. Hi Tim, i was at Silica Beach about 18 months ago, it certainly is a rare and beautiful place. You sure thats what the croc said? i reckon it might have been more like “Ah, dinner has arrived…”

    • Nah Adam, he was only about 1.5 m, so for him discretion was the better part of valour. It is a beautiful little spot though!
