Sure, you’ll probably go to Margs and sip endless glasses of the internationally recognized wine – they have 150 wine producers! But there’s another great reason to visit this region in South West Australia – the beaches of Margaret River!

After road tripping around Australia for 18 months, I can safely say this stretch of coastline has some of the most stunning beaches in Australia, for quality and quantity.

The Best Margaret River Beaches

They are some of the most beautiful beaches you will ever walk on and for the surfers, some of the best waves you’ll ever ride.

Hamelin Bay Beach

Possibly the most picturesque beach for me was Hamelin Bay with its fine white sand, crystal clear turquoise water, and those natural dunes. It’s a great spot for swimming, snorkeling, and apparently scuba diving.

Yallingup Beach

This beach has powerful surf breaks over the Yallingup Lagoon, and I enjoyed our morning ritual of grabbing a coffee from the mobile coffee man at Yallingup point car park and watching the surfers ride the waves.

Smiths Beach

Next door to Yallingup, Smiths Beach is an expansive flat beach with more of that pure-white sand and beautiful blue water every Margaret River beach has.

Prevelly and Margaret River Mouth

Prevelly Beach is close to Margaret River town and is famous around the surfing world as being home to the pro surfing event held every April at Surfers Point.

Gnarabup Beach

Neighbouring Gnarabup Beach was mostly occupied by families playing on the sandy beach, swimming, snorkeling, and fishing. It’s much calmer on the waves side of things due to the reefs out to sea providing a bit of shelter.
