Cape Fife was one of the most peaceful places I’ve ever been. We hiked with high hopes after hearing rumours of an open-use cabin on the eastern shore. Packing in tents and enough supplies for a few days we were prepared for whatever, but were pleased to find a perfect cabin right on the shores of the Pacific. We ended up staying four nights.
There were miles of beaching stretching north and south in front of us, and the vast open skies were, although cloudy, very peaceful and gave a sense of solitude. In reality, anyone with a 4×4 vehicle could drive along the beaches of the Rosespit, 35 km around the peninsula, but it felt like we were far away from any civilization.
Life doesn’t get much better then what we had a Cape Fife; spending our days collecting firewood, exploring the beaches and relaxing. We probably would have stayed longer but there was far too much more on the island too see.
I think we all agreed that Cape Fife was an experience that we would all remember forever. It was a pretty amazing place, and with some great people too. If you ever get the chance, it’s worth navigating the rainforest for. There’s a great trail if you can find it under all the water
