Boyd Tower to Red sands Bay is a 4.9km, grade 4 Return hike located in Ben Boyd National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 hrs to complete.


Starting near Boyd Tower this walk follows the Light to Light walk to a bay with a fine red gravel beach. The walk passes scenic views of Boyd Tower through the scrub as it continues past awesome examples of geological rock folding in the cliffs of the bays. Red Sands bay itself is something quite different with its large grain red sand/gravel mixed with smooth round white pebbles and other rocks. The contrast in colours with the ocean and a blue sky is quite something.
