Denmark Western Australia - A Local's Tour Guide
Denmark Accommodation

Fifteen kilometers to the west of Denmark is the magical Greens Pool. Almost completely sheltered from the waves of the Great Southern Ocean by the rounded rock boulders typical to this area, Greens Pool is paradise. Walking into the water from the beach, you will notice the gradual slope, allowing children of all ages to experience the ocean in an safe and comfortable environment.

The expansively white beach stretches west, endlessly out of sight, far past the rock guardians of the rock pool across William Bay to Mazzoletti Beach. William Bay National Park is close to town and is easily accessible along sealed and unsealed roads perfectly suited to 2wd vehicles.

Greens Pool has been a favourite beach location since the European settlement and is one of the most visited places in Denmark because of its tranquil beauty. Swim school happens at Greens Pool each summer.

Greens Pool's calm turquoise waters is always a great sight. From the lookout you can see out over the beach and along the sweeping stretch of Mazzoletti Beach in the distance. The descent is a sealed path, gradually sloping to the top of the stairs which will take you onto the sand. It's just a few minutes from the carpark to the beach.

What makes Greens pool so divine?
Green’s Pool is surrounded by gradually sloping rock formations cut with small crevasses and pools – perfect for children young and old. The calm waters of Greens Pool are very clearly seen in this video of Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool from Tower Hill. The video starts with the backs of the elephants, and pans west (right) to Greens Pool.

On days when the wind is up, the rocks make a perfect shelter for enjoying a wind-free day at the beach.

Many an older adventurer has been seen jumping from the single square-topped boulder in the centre of the pool. If you are into snorkeling, the wave-less waters make it easy to spot multitudes of fish of all sizes – from hand size schools to large sting-rays.

To the east, the sloping rocks increase in size and height as they move towards Elephant Rocks and Elephant Cove just a short walk across the headland. Vising Elephant Rocks from Greens Pool is possible, but you'll have to remember to walk back the way you came to get back to your car.
