The beautiful Bushrangers Bay comprises of a white sandy beach surrounded contrasted by dark and brooding basalt cliffs and headlands, and wild waves that often crash onto the jagged rocks guarding the entrance to the bay. Bushrangers Bay can be accessed from the car park in Boneo Road and picnic area (2.5km).
