Best known for the part it once played in Australia’s convict history, Eaglehawk Neck is the narrow sandbar prisoners once had to brave if they did manage to escape the infamous Port Arthur penal colony. History aside, waves generated in the Tasman Sea roll in to Pirate’s Bay and break along Eaglehawk Neck in incredibly long, smooth sets. The water’s cold but incredibly clean – a fact clearly appreciated by the wildlife, judging by the number of whales, dolphins and seals that can often be seen gambolling offshore.
