Even though you’re going to be staying in one of our ridiculously cool White Beach hotels, you should still check out some of the other beaches in the area. Actually…the other beaches in the area are non-existent unless you want to travel a couple hundred kilometres, so here’s a list of things to do in White Beach instead:
- Hardy’s Hill Nature Reserve – Lace up a pair of hiking boots and go for a bushwalk through this stunning nature park. Keep your eyes peeled for the island’s most famous resident, the Tasmanian devil. They’re friendlier than the one on Looney Tunes, but not by much. Keep your distance.
- Port Arthur Historic Site – Make your way across the peninsula until you come to the former convict settlement of Port Arthur. Check out the old penitentiary ruins at the Port Arthur Historic Site and then take a ferry ride to the Isle of the Dead.
Home Sweet Away from Home
As rugged as this land may be, there are still some very fine places to stay. We’ve assembled a nice little list of spots to bunk in White Beach. Check them out below:
- Storm Bay Guest House – You came here to have a good time and to stay in a room with a view. Luckily for you, the Storm Bay has both. After you’ve settled into your Bay View Room (or the Blue Room or the Red Room…all of them look out over Parson’s Bay) go for a lovely horseback ride through the countryside.
- Port Arthur Motor Inn – Hey, this isn’t in White Beach, but that’s okay. Book yourself a one, two or three-bedroom suite and then enjoy a plate of fish and chips at the on-site restaurant. After that, head into town and go for a walk in the Government Gardens.
You’ve had enough of the big cities for the time being. We think you need to go off the beaten path and head south. Book amazing White Beach accommodation through Wotif and enjoy your time out of the cubicle.
