We head along to coast from Walpole towards Denmark and visit some of the beaches.  There are further opportunities to reach beaches on four wheel drive tracks.

 

Peaceful Bay

 

This small holiday settlement around 30 kilometres east of Walpole and 45 kilometres west of Denmark is a very popular weekend and holiday destination with Caravan Park, chalets and private cottages.

Take a drive to Madfish Bay and further on to Waterfall Beach, where a tiny waterfall comes out of the hill to trickle across the beach. 

 

Ocean Beach

 

A popular surfing beach near the sandbar enclosing Wilson Inlet.  Once opened annually, due to low water levels the bar is now rarely opened.  There is a surf club and amenities at the beach. 

Lights Beach

 

A beach close to Denmark which is suitable for fishing

 

William Bay National Park

 

Green scrub covered hills with stark grey granite rocks, a rocky coastline and clear turquoise water are features of this coastal National Park fifteen kilometres west of Denmark.  There are pockets of Karri forest in the deeper soils of some valleys. 

 

Being enclosed by a rock boundary makes Greens Pool a safe and pleasant environment for a swim in any season, with the shallow water remaining relatively warm. 

 

 A short walk away are the Elephant Rocks, where large rocks stand in the shallow waters. 

 

 

Parry Beach

 

This community run serviced campground set amongst shady trees gets crowded at peak times.  Sites are unpowered and generators are permitted at set hours.  Only some sites are suitable for larger caravans.  Campfires are permitted most of the year at the campground, even during the summer months when no fires may be lit through most of the Shire of Denmark. Parry Beach is close to the William Bay National Park.

There is no entry fee to visit the William Bay National Park.  Camping is not permitted in the park but there are a number of private accommodation venues in the vicinity.
