You might go for the wineries and stay for the sea. Or the other way around. Either way if you make your way to Perth you’ll either want to go way south or way north.
Best beaches in town
Meelup Bay (it has a grassy area and trees – really unusual for the West Coast and a lovely treat). Take a picnic!
Eagle Bay just around the corner.
Hamelin Bay (you can wade with the mantarays)
Smiths Beach (grab some fish and chips for sunset with the surfers)
Our tip: find your own spot by heading into the dunes with the 4WD in ‘Margs’. See more of the best here.
