Stunning Beaches

Denmark and it's surrounds are a beach lover's paradise. Choose from glassy, gentle pools protected from the ocean to classic beaches or reefs for surfing or fishing, you will not be disappointed by the magnificent South Coast of Western Australia. Please be careful as mother nature is unpredictable and conditions can change quickly.

Ocean's Beach

At the mouth of the Wilson Inlet is Ocean's Beach. Only 7 kms from town, you can walk across via Prawn Rock Channel or use the carpark. Surf, fish or just walk..... this beach feels like it goes on forever. In season, you may even spot humpback whales as they pass during their annual migration.

Lights Beach

Ideal for swimming, surfing or fishing, Lights Beach is yet another Denmark stunner! It offers beautiful views across William Bay and you can walk right around the headland. If you enjoy photography, Lights is great for those fabulous long exposure landscape images!

Greens Pool

Arguably the number one natural attraction in the Denmark area, Greens Pool is a favourite spot for locals and tourists. A stunning pool of calm water that is protected from the ocean by large rock formations. There are small island rocks you can jump off or sunbake on. Just get there early to beat the crowds!

Elephant Rocks

Look closely... from on the beach or on the rocks above, these large granite formations have been strangely eroded to resemble a small herd of Elephants. Part of the William Bay National Park, it is a short walk or drive from Greens Pool. Take a swim, wander the rockpools or get the ultimate Instagram pic!


Parry Beach

Located at the western end of William Bay, the beach offers spectacular views towards Greens Pool. It is quite wide and flat and is popular to drive a 4WD along it or to go beach fishing.

Madfish Bay

Imagine lying on a beach while the water gentle laps onto the sand from either side of you. The sandbar makes for an extra beach with a walk out to the rock shelf (at lower tides) and the pool itself is a window into and underwater wonderland. An absolute must see and only a short drive or walk from Greens Pool.

Shelley Beach

About 30 mins toward Albany, Shelley Beach is simply stunning. Drive through the forest and up to the lookout overlooking the ocean and the beach below (where on nice days you will see hangliders in action), then head down and see the crystal waters and white sand.  

Prawn Rock Channel

Just before the hills on your way to Ocean Beach, Prawn Rock Channel is a tidal flat water area great for a swim, snorkel or fishing. It's also the way to get out to the inlet to cross over to walk along Ocean's beach.
