Description & Services
Western Head Beaches 
The area of the coast known as west head is littered with beaches.  
These are a true hidden treasure of the Lockeport Loop, and most visitors to the area, and some residents, will never see them. 
All though access is limited to those who are willing to clamber through wild flower bushes, the hike is well worth it!  
With wild fruit growing all around the beaches, you need not worry about energy snacks.  
Blueberry's, Strawberry's, and bake apples, are all prolific in the area. 
Beautiful rugged terrain, a photographers or painters dream!
