Frenchman Bay Beach, Albany

 

One of the most beautiful places in Albany to visit for a picnic and a swim is Frenchman Bay Beach, often called “Frenchman’s Bay”.

It has squeaky clean white sand, gentle turquoise water, green grass and dense bush land providing lots of natural shade.

There are steps so you can make a safe entry into the water, BBQ facilities, picnic tables with benched seating, a drink fountain, gazebos, parking and public toilets.

The last time I went swimming at Frenchman’s Bay Beach is was twenty degrees and raining but it was still warm enough to go swimming because the bay is sheltered from the winds.

Frenchman Bay Beach is located at 1823 Frenchman Bay Road in Albany.
