Mistaken Island is an island located in King George Sound approximately 5 kilometres from Albany, Western Australia. The island itself was declared a class 1A Nature Reserve in 1971 and today is used to cultivate mussels.
The area is a fantastic location to take a dip in crystal clear water. From Mistaken Island Beach you can swim or paddle to the island (at your own risk of course).
There is a small Fairy penguin colony on Mistaken Island.
How to get there – Mistaken Island Beach is located on Quaranup Road. From Princess Royal Drive take the Frenchman Bay road and head in the direction of Whale World. The Quaranup Road turn off is about 12kms on the left-hand side.
