Either because we’re suckers for punishment or love a big list, we’ve once again been hard at it working on another bucket list-style mega list for you to work through. After showcasing 70 of the best wild swimming spots around Perth and Western Australia (check it HERE), we now turn attention towards our beautiful beaches.
It may seem trite to talk about WA and beaches, but to be fair it’s one of our biggest draw-cards and there is HEAPS of them. To make things interesting (and hopefully generate a bit of lighthearted discussion amongst you fine peeps), we’ve also decided to rank them from 50-1! So have fun, and tear us a new one in the comments if you think we’re off the mark.
P.S. yes there’s a whole bunch that didn’t make the list, but we can’t give alllll the best beaches away now, can we?
P.P.S when you’re visiting these beautiful locations, please remember to leave no trace, and treat these beautiful spaces with the respect they deserve.
50. Mullaloo Beach (Perth)
The jewel of the north! Mullaloo Beach (or MULLAZ to the locals), is a lovely long white stretch of sand that’s the go-to for our northern suburbs family. There’s an epic beach path that runs along the whole stretch so you can find a spot to yourself, plus plenty of amenities on the grass at Mullaloo Beach proper.
49. Shell Beach
One of the most unique beach-going experiences in WA (see also: on Earth), Shell Beach in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area is made up of billions of shells from the Shark Bay cockle. Going down 10m at some points and running for over 70km, it’s a beach like few others around the world. On calm days the hyper-saline water is also great for floating around in.
