You’re going to LOVE it! It’s a dream Bucket List Experience!
Salty sea breeze in your hair, sun warm on your face, sparkling waves rolling in - maybe you'll even spot some of our resident dolphin pod or migrating humpback whales breaching and spouting! Riding your own horse on Diamond Beach is a truly horse owner's dream come true.
Horses are welcome on Diamond Beach at any time... 6 kilometres of glorious golden sands, where you can ride all the way up the beach to Saltwater Lagoon.
You’ll probably have most of the beach to just you and your horse most days - particularly out of peak holiday times. Turn right once your horses hooves hit the sand for a short easy ride down and around the little head land to the rocks and back. Turn left for a long ride up the beach and up to Saltwater Lagoon.
No fear of motor vehicles disturbing your beach ride - vehicles are not permitted on Diamond Beach and after approx 500m there is no access to the beach except by walking along the beach, so it's mostly just you and your horse.
It’s important that you read and follow the ‘Rules for Horse Riding on the Beach’ guidelines sheet we’ll give you on arrival (or find it in our Welcome Folder) so you can help keep our beautiful Diamond Beach ‘horse friendly’ and welcoming for many years to come.
Sometimes horses that haven’t been on the beach or seen the ocean before, may require a little confidence building/encouragement from you to start with, but they usually settle quite quickly.
Most people enjoy seeing horses on the beach, so give them a smile and wave as you go past. Please remember, pedestrians on the beach always have Right of Way.
You can ride on the beach as many times as you like during your stay here at Sea Horse. Morning, Noon and Night. Be there on the beach early and welcome a spectacular sunrise to start the day or how about a beach ride with friends on a bright full moon night?
