Beach delight at Thevenard IslandMackerel Islands, Onslow

Set off the Pilbara coast in the Indian Ocean, Thevenard is the kind of spot you dream about being washed up on for a few days. If you enjoy the simple life with an epic setting, this is just the ticket. Ten absolute beachfront cabins are set overlooking the ocean and moored boats. It’s much loved by those who rejoice in throwing out a line, but you can also hire kayaks, SUPs and snorkelling gear to explore the fringing reef.

A casual dinner under the stars happens twice a week, otherwise guests fend for themselves. If you’ve got your own boat, you can make the 45-minute journey from Onslow yourself, otherwise there’s a twice-weekly transfer.
