Another beautiful South West beach, spectacular sand and crystal clear water. Great beach for families as the waves are a bit smaller. Our dog loved it (as he does most beaches)

Great little recommendation from our accommodation host. Easy & close parking. Clear and mostly seaweed free waters. Wasn't crowded at all but we were there mid week so might be a different story come the weekend. Little portion of dog beach to the north end. Pretty well protected from the waves.

We've been to this beach many times, and it can be a beautiful spot. There's a jetty here too. But it does have the feel of an "almost" beach. It's almost good for surfing, but the waves are not very often good enough. It's almost good for swimming, but there's often a lot of seaweed on the left hand side,... More

The kids loved this beach. There is a jetty that they can jump off and also a floating pontoon that they can swim out to. Nice and safe because of the reef which is further out. We went here over the Australia Day weekend and there was a paddle board hire set up (not sure if they are there all... More

One of many beautiful beaches down in the Margaret River region. Nice little cafe nearby to grab a morning coffee.

This is one of the few sheltered beaches in the region, so is generally suitable for children and non-swimmers. There is often some sea-weed either on the beach or in the shallows. The café is busy and serves great meals and coffee. Parking can be a problem, but head straight to the overflow car park at the top of the... More
