Overview

You'll need 4WD to get to Three Bears along Sugar Loaf Road, but once there you'll have the choice of three breaks which will make it worth your while! Mama, Papa and Baby Bears are fun in a south west swell with anything from east to nor-east winds.

Good surf spot when the swell and winds are right. Decent size carpark. Busy on weekends and holiday periods. I reckon it's best to do the north to south run of the 3 bears 4wd track for entry. Just be sure to deflate tyres and drive with care.

Fun 4wd track. Nothing technical and great scenery coming from the sugarloaf rock end. Carpark with toilets and an interesting beach for the kids to explore.

The most beautiful, natural, spiritual beach only accessible by four wheel drive. When you sit in the water with those perfect big waves rolling in, looking at the natural white beach in front of you with the limestone cathedral protecting it, you understand how blessed we are to have this perfect place. Three Bears was named by Yallingup surfing identity George Simpson in the 70s, when you had to bump your way up a rough track from Yallingup. When George discovered the three perfect surf breaks along the beach, he named them Baby Bear, Mama Bear and Papa Bear. "Babies" as it's known gets the most crowded, but it's social, mature, and when it looks packed a lot of surfers sit closer to shore as "decoys" for the guys and girls taking the bigger waves out the back. There's no better natural feeling when you hear the cry "out the back, out the back" and paddle out wide to turn and take one of the bigger sneakers. This wave is one of the best in the world for those who've travelled, and still a relative secret, even though the car park gets packed with tour-orists at busy times. Seriously, why would you go anywhere else apart from WA's beautiful south west beaches with white sand and perfect surf.
