Gnarabup Beach, Margaret River

4.6
#4 of 11 in Beaches in Margaret River Region
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.

Where to stay in Margaret River

Though many choose to explore the Margaret River wine region from a base at one of the area's campgrounds, you can also set up your home-away-from-home at one of the city's comfortable inns. Look for cozy establishments located near good surfing and swimming beaches. For a more luxurious experience, consider staying at a resort hotel or beach cottage, many of which offer well-equipped cooking areas and wooden decks ideal for holding small parties and family get-togethers.
