Located on the east side of Cape Naturaliste, this calm, turquoise bay is protected from the westerly winds and ocean swell. Perfect for swimming, fishing and relaxing and a picturesque spot for a picnic with gas BBQs, picnic tables and wheelchair access. Castle Rock is located at the end of Castle Bay, accessed by a meander along the beach or via the Meelup Trail offering incredible views.
If you're a lover of wildflowers, this is the place to come - head east on the coastal track towards Castle Rock and the whale lookout or head west towards Meelup Beach and you'll find several varieties of Spider, Mustard, Jug, Donkey and possibly the rare Cape Orchid. Native Rose, Pimeleas Hooded Lily and Acacias (Wattles) can also be spotted here. 

It is also a great surf break if you venture off the beach. When the swells are big and dangerous along the coast head to Castle Rock - it is protected and holds good swell with great long rides.

If you are down south all the time and just want to explore something new, this place is perfect to explore, relax, nap in the shade on a flat rock and have a Picknick and swim! The rock looks like a castle and is really nice, but if you wander off to the left you will find a beautiful spot with amazing rocks, which give shade and are flat so you can lie in them. It’s also a good fishing spot and invited for a swim.

Great place to spend a day, great for swimming and walking/hiking around. Be careful when walking on or around rocks and DO NOT follow google maps, it’s wrong. Follow castle rock drive.

Pristine beaches and crystal clear water! There’s a nice hiking trail that follows the beach that is buzzing with wildlife!
