“A gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

If you pass through Bunbury without visitinfg the back beach you have missed a treat - heaps of sand and given the right conditions a good swell and surfing opportunity. There is plenty of car parking, toilets and a restaurant / cafe.

“Our first visit to a beach in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Back Beach was the first beach we visited when we arrived in Australia. We went for a long walk, ran into the water, watched the sun go down and took the most amazing photo's.

“Pristine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Love the beach in Bunbury! It's so clean and pristine. So close to the city and lovely in both summer and winter. There is even a couple of dog friendly areas!

“Fantastic one day perfect the next”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Within walking distance of the CBD and cafes, with a good café and parking on the foreshore. Great expanses of beach usually safe for kids and non-swimmers as waves not too big; lifeguards on weekends in summer. Great fishing off exposed rocks; and grassed area with BBQ's for public use near café, with a great kids park and toilets etc opposite oval. Wonderful bike path for cyclists or families going for a walk with a pram. Great sunsets - rarely has stingers (if ever - I have never been stung).

“I prefer Koombana Bay.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Really lovely beach, awesome view, but personally I prefer Koombana, the water is much calmer and nicer to swim in if you've got kids or aren't that confident of a swimmer. Other than that, it's a really nice beach, gets a decent amount of breeze which is great during the hot weather.
