That is not to say we’re moving to Boat Harbour Beach, alas.
But it is to say that one-day, we’ll be back.
This little known beach on the north west coast of Tasmania stole my heart last summer. Do you think Boat Harbour Beach could steal your heart too?
Rolling hills of farmland cascade into the blue.
The family friendly waves of crystal clear water refresh and revitalise me, from my toes.
At Boat Harbour Beach, there are rock pools to explore. Pacific Gulls to marvel at. Reams of beaming white sand to wander on.
Best of all, Boat Harbour Beach has community.
On the beach you can feel a sense of warming solitude. But, turn towards the club house, the surf club house that is, and you are greeted with the sounds of happy children playing on a playground built in the sand and old friends and neighbours reuniting over the clink of cold, club-priced, beers, toasting another day in paradise.
The short summer season is celebrated by locals and travellers alike here. They feast on delicious, homemade fish burgers and watch the beach glow in the dusk light.
One of the locals builds a fire and the laughs gets heartier.
The friendly staff at the Boat Harbour Beach Surf Club confirmed that there are fewer reasons for such joviality in the long winters. It’s still beautiful, they say, just freezing.
And so, with that, dear family and friends in the north, you’ll be pleased to know, we will not be settling at Boat Harbour on Tasmania’s north coast. But, we’ve buried a little peace of our heart in the sand there, so that we always remember to come back. I look forward to the day that we drive down this road, to Boat Harbour again.
If you could spend one season a year somewhere in the world, what season would it be and where!??! I’d love to chat about it in the comments below.4 Did you like this?
