There is a reef which stops the big waves getting to the swimming area, which makes for nicer swimming. The café nearby is great for coffee and food. There are toilets and changing areas as well as bike racks. Lots of parking too.

We stopped at Gnarabup Beach which is lovely and secluded. This was late afternoon and unfortunately the cafe was closed which was a pity.

This is a pretty little beach, nestled in a pretty little cove. It has a long metal boat launch ramp and we enjoyed watching a pair of surfers launch their jet ski off it. The surfing was great. The views were great. And it's a nice place to swim. Good all around.

Good for swimming, boating, sunbathing, and surfing.There isn't anywhere to shelter from the sun, but most people had sun shades. It is lovely to have the tap to wash off feet and toilets by the White Elephant cafe as well.

The place has been spruced up since visiting 3 years ago. Nice to see well laid out paths and good roads and parking. Well done. Nice views over the ocean.

Stayed at the Resort close to beach and had a short walk to beach which has a café there. Not too crowded either so was good for us.
