Denmark Accommodation

Ocean Beach is set between the Wilson Inlet and the Great Southern Ocean. Only a few kilometres outside Denmark along Ocean Beach Road, the look-out is well signposted with beach access shortly thereafter at the Surf Lifesaving Club.

Ocean Beach is a must-visit while in Denmark, take a deep breath of the beautiful fresh air coming off the ocean. From the look-out there are fantastic views of the beach surf as well as the calm darker waters of the Wilson Inlet (below).

Flocks of Pelicans can be seen fishing at the base of the inlet, from time to time.

The beach is a popular surfing spot with a lookout to watch the action. Walking along the beach to the east you will either find a sand-bar taking you to the Nullaki peninsula... or an open channel from the Wilson Inlet (right) where the dark waters pour into the ocean.

You can even learn how to surf in Denmark! Surf lessons happen daily from the beach with our wonderful, friendly and highly experienced local instructor at South Coast Surfing Lessons.

Ocean Beach is one of our children's favourite beaches. The waves are constant, not too big, not too small. Just the right size (between the flags) to be enjoyable and challenging at the same time.

The Denmark Surf Life Saving Club patrol it on weekends from December to March.

The facilities are excellent with a large carpark between the Sea Rescue and the Surf Lifesaving Club and a sealed path to the beach with toilets and showers on the way.

It's also one of our favourite beaches too. The views are spectacular wherever you look. The beach stretches onto Nullaki Peninsula, crossing the mouth of the Wilson Inlet (when the sandbar is in place), making it an ideal place for a nice long beachwalk. Alternatively, stop at the Lookout to see the Wilson Inlet and the waves crashing at Ocean Beach.
