The sheltered cove area at one end of this beautiful beach would be perfect for kids' play while the adults enjoy the views (and food). Pity the White Elephant cafe was under renovations when we visited.

Perhaps we made the wrong choice as there are other beaches in MR. The beach was kinda steep for my kid to run about and it's awash with seaweeds. Not exactly the best place for him to build his sandcastles. It was nonetheless a beach with a great view.

Like most of the Margaret River beaches, this was lovely. It was cold & blustery which seemed to add to the beauty., There is a safe staircase leading down to the beach as well as a boat-ramp and a designated lookout over the beach. There is a cafe there which was closed when we visited off season.

We packed a small dinner expecting to be the only ones on the beach. While not a big beach by WA standards, it was full of people with the same idea. Once we settled in the sunset was simply natures way of saying see you tomorrow. The range of colours from bright white light to deep dark orange and everything... More

We walked from the Margaret River mouth via Surfers Point to Gnarabup Beach and thought it was spectacular. A very windy day, but sunny and bracing. A well designed and maintained walk that would have been perfect with a hot cup of Fiori coffee.

Gnarabup is tucked in a little cove which makes it great for swimming. There is usually a pontoon out in the water to play on and a great cafe on site.

This is a nice scenic beach to visit with a lookout area and the beach area which has a jetty & the cafe (closed for winter). Great beach for taking sunset photo's as well.

The drive leading to the beach is very scenic with views of the ocean everywhere you look. The day we were there the ocean was rough and you would not be swimming for safety reasons. The kiosk is closed for winter and reopens in September. There is no doubt this beach would be a great area to swim over the... More

While staying at Margaret's beach resort came and spent some time at the beach. It reminded me of the beach where I grew up in the north of Scotland . We relaxed and had walks along the beach and in the sand dunes. Nice beach and cafe great
