The beach at Cosy Corner is generally sheltered and is popular for swimming. The limestone platform on the beach to the south of the car park contains many blowholes able to spurt water up to 6m high on rough days.
The sprinkling of islands offshore from Cosy Corner in the Ngari Capes Marine Park are surrounded by stunning reefs and drop-offs that are home to a myriad of colourful marine animals, including the giant blue groper. It is a perfect place for diving if you pick your weather conditions and are prepared to lug heavy scuba equipment down the steep path.
Cosy Corner is popular with both beach and rock fishers but if you decide to try your hand fishing here please do so with an eye to your personal safety, as the rugged swells in this area occasionally wash fishers off rocks and result in fatalities. Always wear a personal flotation device when fishing from rocks and never fish alone. Cosy Corner is a special purpose zone. This zone allows for shore-based line fishing and shore-based rock fishing only. All other fishing is prohibited, this included spearfishing, boat fishing, octopus potting or trapping.
Be aware of daily bag limits, minimum legal sizes and other regulations, for more information visit Fisheries. Learn more about staying safe while fishing.
