The beaches are flat, white and beautiful, perfect for walks, picnics
and entertaining young children.
Cervantes | Stop at Hansen Bay Lookout near Cervantes, just past
the Lake Thetis turn off, for a stunning view. Thirsty Point, with its
Lookout, is the most popular beach, and you can fish, swim and
shelter there from the sun.
One Tree Bay | Some beaches have amazing rock formations on them,
almost like Pinnacles by the water... you will need to explore near
Sandy Cape, on a beach the locals call One Tree Bay, to find these –
there are no signs.
Jurien Bay | Town Beach, nominated as one of WA’s cleanest beaches,
is the area’s major recreational beach and is linked by the 5km
Turquoise Way Trail, a sealed walking and bicycle track from the
Marina. Head to Dobbyn Park for the new children’s play area and
the new concrete recreational jetty and swimming pontoon. Marina
Beach has grassy areas and shallow water in a protected bay – best to
take an umbrella along for shade.
Green Head | With an interesting Aboriginal and European history,
Green Head has three bays to walk: the sweeping, at times ‘stinky’,
South Bay; the picturesque and protected Dynamite Bay with its
excellent swimming and picnic facilities; and the charming peaceful
Anchorage Bay. Head along past rocky inlets and headlands,
limestone reefs and cliffs, and nesting sites to see a wide range of
native fauna. You might be lucky enough to spot sea lions, dolphins,
white bellied sea eagles and ospreys, and in spring, you’ll be walking
amongst the wildflowers.
Denison-Dongara’s South and Town beaches | Each goes for miles
and is excellent for fishing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and 4WDing. The
Irwin River Nature Trail is perfect for a leisurely walk to enjoy the river
wildlife and views of the river mouth and ocean. To get on the Irwin
River, you will need to take your own kayak.
