#1 of 11 in Beaches in Margaret River Region
Secluded Meelup Beach has wonderful sand, spectacular views, and clear turquoise water. Its natural beauty has a magnetic attraction for those looking for the perfect family spot or to just take a break. Cool off in the bay and take a nap under the trees while hearing the ocean lap behind you. The very calm water makes this beach safe for swimming. Hike the many trails around the beach, which have great vantage points for viewing the numerous dolphins and whales.

    My family loved spending a few hours at Meelup Beach. The bay is calm, the sand is soft, and the parkland is beautiful.

    Beautiful shaded picnic area to stop at while touring the south west. Revived with lunch and a swim after combining fabulous local produce with our picnic. Clean showers and toilets.
