Wineglass Bay, Tasmania - you won't want to leave in a hurry.
Once we walked to the lookout, climbed up some granite rocks and soaked in the tranquillity (there were 20 others there, but we were all soaking majestic glory like a first time church goer) and we took our pictures. Yes, the bay does have the shape of a wine glass. This is because of the distinction between the bleach white sand and the crystal clean aqua water. I would say it actually looks more like a blue and green cocktail because the water is so vividly clear. After taking our pictures, we swapped cameras with the other tourists, did some snap-snapping for them and headed down towards the beach. This is approximately a 20 minute walk down from the vista, where you enter from the left side of the bay (when looking out from the beach). To walk all the way around the wine glass, it took us another half an hour - with a few rests in between. The sand is coarse when you first hit the beach, but the further you go, the finer it gets, until it's so fine that when you walk on the dry parts it squeaks. Our group all thought it would have been a great place to crack open some wine and eat some gourmet cheese and crackers. If we were better organised, we would have bought a little picnic, next time!
