The 20 km ride on a curved sandy beach taking in the views of Mt Strzelecki and Darling Ranges, beginning from Whitemark Boat Ramp.  Feel the wind on your face and breathe in the fresh air as it blows off the pristine waters of Bass Strait. Island spotting as you ride for some of the 52 islands that make up the Furneaux Group, such as Big Green, Chappell, Kangaroo, Chalky, Prime Seal, Badger, Goose and Cape Barren Islands.  Your friendly local guide will be able to point out and provide information on each island as you meander your way along the beach.  Keep a look out for washed up treasure like shark teeth or delicate paper nautilus shells which wash ashore between the months of March and June. Marvel at the abundance of seabirds or the chance to see Cape Barren Geese up close as they fly overhead to return to the outlying islands to roost on dusk.
