I visit Trigg Beach on regular basis and one of the best times to come is during Aussie winter. Mornings can be cold, but the colors are incredible. I spend most of the time north of the Trigg Island, a small rocky islet that splits north and south Trigg. North Trigg marks the beginning of the Marmion Marine Park. This part of the beach is slightly rocky and a bit reefy. Perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
South Trigg, a long stretch of sandy turf, couldn’t be more different. This part of the beach is claimed by surfers and not ideal for swimming. Also, just south of the Trigg Island is the Blue Hole, a permanent rip that is the site of many rescues. I find rip currents complex and terrifying and prefer to avoid them by swimming in designated areas.
