Hamelin Bay Beach

Star 4.7 (773 Google reviews)

A visit to stunning Hamelin Bay is a must-do on any holiday schedule in the region. A vast expanse of bright white sand, turquoise waters filled with marine life, and spectacular coastal cliff walks. The sheltered bay is great for swimming, snorkelling and fishing, and divers can explore the nearby shipwreck.
For the bird enthusiasts, walk to the freshwater lake near the caravan park and look for water birds including Grey Teal, Purple Swamphen and Grebes. Collard Sparrowhawk and little Eagle have been seen here too and visit the beach for possible sightings of Hooded Plover. In summer, the Sanderling and Bridled Tern are welcomed visitors.

You may also spot a stingray as they sometimes swim close to the shoreline. Keep in mind that these are wild creatures and maintain your distance to respect their space. Please do not touch, feed or disturb wildlife.

 Hamelin Bay is home to a caravan park, small shop, public toilets and boat ramp.

Amazing beach. Very big. We saw live actual sting rays swimming in the ocean. Sadly there was too much sea weed near the beach maybe thats why the stingrays didn’t come too close but it was great to see. You can also go for a swim a little further up the beach as it is much cleaner along there.

WOW this should be on everyones To Do list!! I truly did not expect to see the rays, I really hoped to but thought maybe it was over exaggerated, it is not! The rays are so beautiful and elegant and super friendly! If you stand still and calm they will swim right by your feet. I arrived there around 9:30am and there was about 4 rays in the water, between then and 11am when I left, the rays were just cruising around coming back and forth to the shore line maybe around 6 in total. If you want a quieter time get to the beach as early as you can. Please do not touch or try to feed them and remember they do have barbs on the end of their tails.

Didn’t see any sting rays this time but still a beautiful area. The short hike up the rocky cliffs is worth it as well you get to see panoramic view of the area. Sting ray tip: according to the informational sign they usually come to the shore on clear days, and from experience in the am

The beach was so beautiful! visited the area before noon on feb and we were greeted by friendly stingrays. You can swim on the beach or just say hi to these lovely creatures. There are toilets and benches along the carpark and a boat ramp. A recommended spot to visit!
