Relaxing, tranquil, stunning view! Gnarabup Beach is a perfect getaway, 10min drive from Margaret River township. Driving around the bend towards Gnarabup you catch glimpses of the ocean, the rivermouth and the cliffs and tress the trees part and you are left with this spectacular view. Gnarabup is perfect for relaxing enjoying the view, fishing or surfing.... something for everyone... More

I'm not sure if it was just the time of the year but there was quite a bad smell of rotten fish in the car park from all of the seaweed.

A sheltered beach great for families with views to the big waves further out. It is a great place to watch the big waves and people surfing them.

We visited to check out the dog beach and what a lovely spot. The lightly sanded path just above the beach that leads you to the dog area is a pleasant walk in itself. The sheltered little Gnarabup beach in the bay is perfect for a swim (seemingly best to check shark watch!) or to sit and admire from the... More
