Connection to community is the human attraction of Gnarabup Beach. The jetty for fishing and boat launching. The pontoon and calm waters in summer. Dog walking along the cliff trail through the winter.
The daily meeting of ocean swimmers at resident White Elephant Beach Café all year ‘round. Not so much see and be seen, as come to bare witness to the lives of each other. Everyone is welcome.
Environmentally, this same sense of inclusivity is realised by ocean waters so blue and (mostly) calm that it sometimes feels a dip, here, is an experience of the world’s largest swimming pool. An outer reef breaks the force of the swell.
The inlet cradled between Marmaduke Point and the jetty is an ocean lover’s nursery. This is the site of children’s summer ocean swim classes, after-school jetty jumps, and mid-morning coffees with vivid ocean views.
Dog Friendly Area
The dog exercise area at Gnarabup Beach is accessible via the steps at the Reef Drive carpark. Please adhere to signage and rules; pick up after your dog; and be mindful of people and wildlife on the beach.
