How do I give a guest access to a specific page?

How do I give a guest access to a specific page on a confluence site? It seems like guests need to be part of confluence-users group to have any access at all, but at least in my configuration that gives the guest access to the entire site. Do I have to completely reconfigure my site permissions?

Guests need to be part of confluence-users, and also their own group eg confluence-visitors. Internal employeess need their own group, eg confluence-local. Give confluence-visitors access to the space where the page is, using space permissions. In this space restrict all pages that guests shouldnt see using page access permissions. Restrict these pages to confluence-local. You just need to restrict the top level pages. Finally give confluence-visitors access to the page you want them to see using the page access restrictions (the little padlock at the top of the page).

Thanks for the well thought-put answer Adrian, this makes sense. It will be a while before I can try it out but it seems like a sound approach.

Probably would need to rethink stuff for permissions like this. There's no way to just open up a single page, Permissions are Restrictive.

Confluence has View Permissions, Anonymous Permissions, and 5.9 has "Unlicensed View Permissions" that you can use.

We have a problem here. Steve is right. You can't just open a single page, which should be possible. I want to work with a partner on a lead (one page), but not show the list of all my leads (which is the parent page).
