It’s no bold claim that Western Australia is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, nor that the Margaret River Region has some of the best beaches in the state.
As a major drawcard, the region’s beaches can get packed during peak holiday times. But this is a region that harbours plenty of secrets, and if you’re prepared to put in a little legwork, you’re guaranteed to find your own slice of paradise. Swimming accessibility and aesthetic are weather dependent, so be sure to check the conditions on the day. If the breeze is in (almost every summer’s afternoon) or the swell is up, try one of the sheltered beaches or coves in Geographe Bay. Or, if it’s calm and windless, take your pick!
Because of the secluded nature of these beaches, the facilities, if any, are fairly basic. Be sure to bring your own water and be as self-sufficient as possible.
