A visit to stunning Hamelin Bay is a must-do on many a holiday schedule. A vast expanse of bright white sand, turquoise waters filled with marine life, and spectacular coastal cliff walks. The sheltered bay is great for swimming, snorkelling and fishing, and divers can explore the nearby shipwreck.

For the bird enthusiasts, walk to the freshwater lake near the caravan park and look for water birds including Grey Teal, Purple Swamphen and Grebes. Collard Sparrowhawk and little Eagle have been seen here. Visit the beach for possible sightings of Hooded Plover. In summer, the Sanderling and Bridled Tern are welcome visitors.

It's also possible that you will spot a stingray, as they sometimes swim close to the shoreline. Keep in mind that these are wild creatures, and maintain your distance to respect their space. 

 Hamelin Bay is home to a caravan park, small shop, public toilets and boat ramp.

Best beach in Augusta. It is most beautiful in Summer and it is a must visit place if you come down south. The old jetty makes it amazing and the Eagle Rays and the Manta Rays that swim around it makes it even better. The water is crystal clear and the sand is so soft. The only issue is how busy it gets. I recommend you come in the early morning because as the day goes on it gets busier and busier. Karen Sipen
It was a great beach to visit with a very nice landscape. I will definitely come back when it's a calmer, warmer day because we weren't able to see any rays. :) josiah
Wild winter weather. Stormy sea. Salt spray. Strong wind. Try a 10 km walk up the beach. Stephen Silich
Quite secluded, so lucky to have so many beaches that are beautiful and not overcrowded. Redhead Digital Marketing
A great little beach easily reached from the Margaret River region. The stingrays can be spotted from the shore without entering the water. Seemed like plenty of parking available with a toilet block on site. Life's Abroad
