Lovely beach, superb views and a great place to relax. Soft sand, calm seas (although i suggest you don't go out too deep!). What more could you want!

Very popular beach, well patronised by surfers and walkers. Nice spot for taking pictures of the coastline and the lovely little bay. Be aware that if the car park is full there is an overflow carpark further up the road.

Great views, and we even spotted a few whales in the distance. Weather was still cool for us to brave the water for a swim.

Good walk along the dune path and onto the headland beyond the beach. Great coffee at the White Elephant cafe.

Walk along the pathway to the second set of steps, if you like a little wave or two with your swim, or go down to the sheltered little bay if you prefer calm water.

Do try the White Elephant cafe here for great coffee and muffins. Lovely views and walks here. When the wind is up, the waves are amazing here.

This is one of a number of similar beaches along this coastline. This beach is wide, often wild and overall both awe inspiring and quite wonderful. The beach is protected by modest sized sand dunes which are absolutely covered with heathland-like vegetation which is ablaze with Western Australian wildflowers throughout Spring.

Stunning views, access good for all. Cafe great and lovely food and atmosphere. Long walk from most accommodation so require vehicle to get there.

Such a great vista out to the WA ocean. If you are travelling, bring some sandtoys for the kids and also water shoes. The beach is lovely but has a lot of wash-up on the sand so hard to walk if barefoot. White Elephant Cafe above it is highly recommended!
