Tasmania is a small island with a population of approximately 500,000. Of course, being an island there are quite a lot of beaches... Sometimes I think there is a beach for each person in Tassie. If you go to a beach, it's "crowded" if there are more than ten people.... We are lucky...
Of course, living in Hobart, we spend our summer weekends relatively close to Hobart. There's no point driving a few more hours when you have a huge choice of beaches just a relatively short drive away.
There are favourite places we go to for a weekend and we make choices usually based on the weather forecast and what other activities we might plan to be doing. Our favourites include:
Orford, which has lovely beaches including Spring Beach and Rheban
Wineglass Bay at Freycinet on the East Coast
Dolphin Sands near Swansea
Chain of Lagoons near Elephant Pass
Mayfield Beach on the way to the East Coast, with fabulous views of Great Oyster Bay
Check out our other posts on fabulous beaches up in the North of the state, on the West Coast and south of Hobart.
Some require a long weekend or a few days off work if you are driving from Hobart (in a slow bus).
