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.
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.
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 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.
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.
