Very interesting creation.. made by earth itself, it looks very much like a split apple, hence the name. Good for pictures and not something you see every day. You can't park down in the bay from where the path begins, you need to park up...More

There are lots of steps down to this beach (so a pretty tiring walk back up), but it was worth it! The split apple rock is pretty cool to see, and the beach itself is lovely. Lovely golden sand, and only a few people on...More

There's a lovely beach here reached by a short walk from the road above. A delightful place to while away the hours.

We saw this rock on the way to Medlands beach. The formation of the rock is very interesting. Good for iconic photos.
