general information

Coffin Bay is part of a National Park and was named by Matthew Flinders. It's an apt name as it grew a reputation with a history of shipwrecks, drownings and shark attacks - yes the boss fish are ever present here. Access is pretty tricky requiring a 4WD vehicle but with a map and a little local knowledge you can explore the many tracks that lead to the coastline and find one of several good quality reefbreaks here. Not really for beginners.
