Summary: Snake Bay is a remote beach in the Shoalhaven, with a 60m long sand and cobble beach. It's reached by foot (or by boat in low swell).

Snake Bay is described as a “a small and beautiful isolated beach” in Murramarang National Park. It’s fairly well sheltered and is safe for swimming, but the mixture of sand and gravel on the beach makes it a bit less inviting than Dawson Island Beach to the north.

Both sides of the narrow bay are lined with rocks, which can be used for rock fishing.

Getting to Snake Bay

The beach is only accessible on foot from Pretty Beach or Pebbly beach along the coastal walk in Murramarang National Park – or by boat in low swell. If you’re doing the Pretty Beach to Pebbly Beach Loop via Durras Mountain, you’ll pass this beach.
