The water in this bay is almost tepid, it is very shallow and consequently very safe for children. Great for paddle boarding and small boat activities. It is an very protected area and is popular with locals and visitors alike. You will not spend a more relaxing day anywhere in Western Australia.

This is the type of beach that you come to when you're not a strong swimmer or have kids. It is very safe as it is calm and shallow. It is obviously to the eye tidal too, so you may prefer to choose high tide, the only disadvantage is the sticky type flies so bring repellent. It is very close... More

I can't say enough great things about WA...no picture will really put into perspective how beautiful it is. Grab a bike and cycle along the coast, I did a 50km ride which was spectacular

Lovely shallow waters for the kids to play in with year round crystal clear waters and golden soft sand just on the outskirts of Dunsborough town.

Such a long beautiful beach with quiet shallow waters, beautiful sand and clear sea. Plenty of access to the beach whether you are walking, cycling or coming by car. Plenty of beach for everyone to find a spot. Dunsborough itself a beautiful little town just walking distance from the beach. Plenty of accommodation to stay the weekend. Lovely peaceful place....

Geographe Bay is sheltered by Cape Naturaliste, which protects it from the worst winds. The bay is usually quite placid. It is also quite shallow,. The Busselton Jetty iis the longest jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. It is around 2 km long (over a mile). You can get the train to the end, you don't have to walk.
