There are two distinct threads in the story of Yallingup Beach.

To the left of the main beach staircase is the Yallingup lagoon, a tranquil embrace of blue encircled by shallow reef. Free of the wild wash of ocean. A slice of kid-friendly, summer-swimming heaven. And to the right? A crash of beach break. Ocean interaction for those that love to feel the push and pull of tide and wave. Surfers come for the opportunity to roll into Indian Ocean steamers that begin their curl where swell hits reef. Yallingup itself is a coddled community of small streets climbing up the hill between sand and Caves Road. The beach offers a certain kind of intimacy created in part by its small-town geography.

In Yallingup, dogs are welcome on the beach north of the Dawson Drive access path. It’s well sign posted and the exclusion zone includes from the Dawson Drive path to the Slippery Rocks Car Park. Yallingup Beach is surrounded by National Park so be careful to use the Dawson Drive entrance, so not to get stung by the rangers.
