Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We loved our visit here, and managed to hit most of the high spots: Frenchman Peak, Lucky Bay, Thistle Cove, and Hellfire Bay. Well worth spending a day here, but expect a lot of people doing the same, and parking lots can be quite filled.

    Expect it to be very, very busy here, because it's a tourist hotspot. So many people taking selfies, flying drones, etc. But the sand is super white and water is so clear and turquoise, it's not hard to see why people love this place. Only go on a sunny day though.

    Although the signs say that you need a 4WD to drive onto the beach, you can easily do it in a 2WD, because it is that firm and compact.

    The white sand and clear water here is amazing. It's also a very safe beach, unlike some others in the Esperance area. One real advantage of this each over many others is that it has toilets and showers. It's very popular though, so expect lots of other people here too.

    All the beaches in the national park here are lovely, but this place has bigger waves than Lucky Bay, so if that's what you're looking for, you'll enjoy this more.

    You can't drive your car on the beach here, but there's lots of parking, and toilets as well. It's only a short walk to the beach. Very busy though!

    To see the orange rocks you really need to climb the rocks on the left of the beach, because the orange colour can best be viewed from the other side.

    If you enjoy a bit of a challenge, this is definitely worthwhile. From start to finish took us about an hour, which included 30 min for the ascent, 15 min up top, and 15 min descent. Probably allow 90 minutes.

    It's pretty steep though, so you need to be reasonably fit, and we saw a number of people really struggling. I wouldn't come here in wet conditions though - too slippery and dangerous.

    Views from up top weren't that great when we visited (too hazy), but you can see the ocean. The huge cave near the top was also really neat to explore.

    I have been to a lot of beaches but this is definitely the best. The whitest sands, the bluest ocean and so peaceful. Lucky bay is very close and perfect to pick up a coffee and use the loo but if you are after some quiet time in an untapped cove Thistle is for you 👌🏼

    Best enjoyed on a sunny day for sure. This walk isn't smooth, because there are stairs in several places, and gravel and rocks with slope. But it's a wonderful walk, and the views are spectacular.

    We also did the longer separate walk to Lovers Beach, which took about 30 minutes return. It's not well signed, but the beach is gorgeous, and we had the place to ourselves.

    What a stunning beach! It's a bit more out of the way, but every bit as good as Twilight Beach.

    The view from the car park is stunning. There's quite a set of steps to go down, but it's worthwhile.

    Beautiful clear water for swimming, and well-protected. Loved walking along the rocks alongside the beach.

    We walked from the Taylor Street precinct to the jetty and back in what is a modern, landscaped development suited to outdoor activities. Plenty of good walking paths, various historic elements, interesting flora and a fair bit of varied birdlife.

    A very pleasant walk and a good way to enjoy a couple of hours of exercise.

    Cape Arid is a unique and special place. I most valued the solitude. And the wild, coastal beauty. Birds abound here, and I am a bird photographer.

    The boat ride out is great fun with stops for wildlife and interesting elements. We didn't do the guided walk but the island is lovely with beautiful clear water and interesting snorkelling. It was a good amount of time on the island with departure at 1.30pm back to the mainland. The bar overlooking the bay was a great bonus where we had a drink before heading back. Would recommend for a fun day out!

    Located about an hour to the east of Esperance, Wharton beach and nearby areas offer both a spectacular squeaky white sand beach but also spectacular coastal scenery, coastal bush land and birdlife. Well worth the drive out from Esperance.

    This place is perfect for taking littlies, and even the adults that came along really liked it.

    They have an all-day $10 breakfast special which is really good value.

    Positive experience for us all round

    My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The weather wasn't in our favour however it didn't stop us from exploring the area. We stayed in a cabin which had everything we could need.
    The camp kitchen is great, stocked with cooking utensils, tea towels, dishwashing liquid, fridge, freezer. Nice bbq area aswell.
    The toilet block was always clean.
    The birds that have made the park their home are so nice to watch and listen to. Baby magpies and cockys screaming out to be fed. Some of the birds were quite cheeky and came in close to see what we were doing. Also saw a couple of resident bobtails out sunning themselves during the day.

    We visited the estuary which was beautiful. Great spot to kayak, skim rocks, go for a wander. We spent a couple of hours there.
    The lagoon beach was perfect even in the stormy weather. Great spot to snorkel, fish, collect shells, climb over rocks, build sand castles. The colour of the water is beautiful.

    The owners Deb & Ross are lovely and very welcoming. Thankyou for sharing your beautiful home with us.

    Overall a perfect location to go to escape the everyday hustle and bustle to be in nature.

    Absolutely amazing beach. Just as beautiful as those in Cape Le Grande National Park. And we were all by ourselves. Perfect
