Best Beaches in Western Australia

Western Australia is known for its beautiful landscapes and tranquil nature spots. This region of Australia is home to some of mother nature’s most beautiful works.

We agreed during our six-month road trip through WA that this region of Australia has the most beautiful beaches.

It’s hard to choose when Australia boasts over 10,000 beaches. We are truly spoilt for choices.

Western Australian shores come out on top when deciding the best beaches in terms of quality, attractions, and beauty.

The beaches in WA’ll blow you away. They have pure white sand, turquoise water perfect for snorkeling and swimming, and the most beautiful sunsets over the ocean.

Here are the top beaches you can’t miss in Western Australia.

Best Beaches of Western Australia

The beaches of Western Australia provide tranquility that the beaches on Australia’s East Coast cannot. The beaches are less developed and crowded than those on the east coast, making it easier to find solitude if you want to.

You will soon discover that each Western Australia beach has unique features.

The Basin on Rottnest Island

You could be forgiven for believing you were on the Great Barrier Reef. A hole on the platform reef off the beach forms a large swimming pool.

Due to its shallow reefs, the Basin is ideal for beginners and an excellent place for snorkeling.

After you’ve finished swimming and lying on the beach’s white sand, climb up the rocky headland to see the incredible views. You can also ride around the island to see the stunning coastal views.

Turquoise Bay, Exmouth

Exmouth, located on the Coral Coast in Western Australia, is worth a visit. It is only a 15-hour drive from Perth. Turquoise Bay alone is a reason to go.

The famous Ningaloo Reef is just meters away. It’s known for its abundance of marine life. You can see majestic whale sharks between March and August, occasionally even sea turtles and humpback orcas, as well as manta and ray rays.

The Bay is a great place to relax, swim, snorkel, and enjoy the scenery.

Take advantage of the drift snorkel. It is one of the most exciting snorkeling experiences. You can park at the “drift parking” to get direct access. Swim out a few meters and let the current take you north. Exit before the sandbar, which is subject to strong currents.

Cable Beach, Broome

Cable Beach is one of our favorite beaches in Australia. The dunes change from red soil to orange light to pure white sand when they reach the turquoise Indian Ocean.

Cable Beach offers the best opportunity to see an ocean sunset. You can watch the sunset from the sand or at a sunset restaurant.

Cable Beach, one of the best beaches in the world, is perfect for long walks, beach volleyball, 4-wd tailgating, and camel rides. It’s also great for swimming, picnics, or even a swim.

Hamelin Bay, Margaret River

The most beautiful beach in the Margaret River Region. The beach is a combination of fine white sand and turquoise water. This is an excellent spot for swimming, diving, and snorkeling.

Hamelin Bay, Australia, is the best place to see wild stingrays. They swim right up to the shore and around your feet. You’ll find the crowds gathered at the boat ramp.

Bill’s Bay is located at Coral Bay.

Bill’s Bay is the most popular beach in Coral Bay.

The Ningaloo Reef Marine Park protects this vast Bay, making it an ideal place for snorkeling and swimming.

We were lucky to see a few rays near the shore. The water was turquoise-blue, and large fish were swimming around our ankles. If you’re fortunate, you might even catch a glimpse at some turtles and reef sharks.

Elephant Rocks in Denmark

Elephant Rocks can be found 15 km from Denmark in William Bay National Park. It is a 4.5-hour drive from Perth. While it may seem off-the-beaten-path, this is a must for anyone visiting the southwest region of WA.

You can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Great Southern Ocean by walking along the coastal path from the parking lot. Elephant Rocks are named so because the rock outcrop resembles a herd of elephants paddling through the shallow water.

Little Beach is located in Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve near Albany.

Little Beach is located 35 km east of Albany and has a white sand beach. It’s one of the most beautiful beaches along the southwest coast. This beach is a must-see in the area. It has turquoise water, white sand, and a large stone against the ocean.

We didn’t go swimming this time but enjoyed a nice walk on the beach and a picnic at the end. Remember to bring your supplies.

Yallingup Beach is located in the Margaret River Region.

A special one for the surfers. Yallingup Beach is known for its powerful surf. Our morning ritual consisted of coffee at the Yallingup Point Car Park and watching surfers ride the waves.

Yallingup’s swimming lagoon is a popular spot for snorkelers. There are also significant swimming areas for kids and a long beach that leads north.

Pinky Beach Rottnest Island

Pinky Beach is located beneath the Bathurst Point Lighthouse, Rottnest Island. It’s another of Rotto’s must-see beaches.

The postcard-perfect Pinkies beach is just a short stroll away from Thomson Bay’s main town. The perfect blue of its waters complements its sparkling water and white sand. If you arrive early, dip in the morning; this beach could be yours!
