Gnarabup Beach, Margaret River
(4.6/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
A large reef breaks up the ocean's swell before it gets close to Gnarabup Beach, so the waters are calm and easy on the shore. However, surfers seek out these swells that carry them back towards the beach, then they can swim out again for another round. Whales migrate through the waters off the coast, and if you're lucky you may catch sight of them coming up for air on their way to their seasonal feeding waters in Antarctica. Work out when and for how long to visit Gnarabup Beach and other Margaret River attractions using our handy Margaret River travel itinerary planner.

  • Very popular beach, well patronised by surfers and walkers. Nice spot for taking pictures of the coastline and the lovely little bay. Be aware that if the car park is full there is an overflow carpark...  more »
  • Great views, and we even spotted a few whales in the distance. Weather was still cool for us to brave the water for a swim. 
  • Good walk along the dune path and onto the headland beyond the beach. Great coffee at the White Elephant cafe.
