South West's Best Beaches

Australia’s South West has over 1,000km of coastline to explore – from tranquil bays and bright lagoons with sand like icing-sugar, to rugged limestone cliffs and granite headlands with otherworldly views.

The South West has over a thousand kilometres of coastline, from tranquil bays and bright blue lagoons to limestone cliffs and rugged granite headlands.

Best of all, the region is lucky enough to have a Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunny days to truly enjoy a day at the beach. If you’re in search of the bustling atmosphere of the European seaside, head to the local town beaches where ice-cream vans and cafes await. If you want to search out your little slice of private heaven, it’s never too far away.
