A sister bay to Nara Inlet, Macona receives more afternoon sunlight – perfect for prolonging the day. Its unusual sand is also full of trapped air that releases when you stand on it.
Macona provides protection in most weather conditions and is a fiord-like recess, surrounded by wooded hills. There are numerous sandy beaches to explore, including one on the north side that’s perfect for sunset drinks and nibbles. In the water, look for multi-coloured fish, turtles and the odd seahorse. Abundant birdlife is best viewed from the many bushwalking tracks.
