Hearson Cove, Cossack and Point Samson
Each location has a vantage point with expansive mudflats which makes them ideal spots to watch the staircase. Head out to Hearson Cove beach where there are free gas BBQ's, picnic shelters and toilets. Make your way to Cossack at up to Settlers Beach for a magical experience or continue to Point Samson and have a cold drink or dinner whilst watching the moon rise.
