Yallingup is a small coastal hamlet nestled into the hillside, overlooking one of the region’s well-known surf beaches. The coastline here is dramatic. Jagged rocks and high cliff faces are met by a haze of sea spray from the swell below.
Yallingup lies to the north of the Margaret River wine region, splendidly nestled on a ridge, surrounded by the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park with spectacular views out to the Indian Ocean, holiday makers regularly take the trip to Yallingup to explore some of the world’s greatest beaches.
