Denmark Western Australia - A Local's Tour Guide

Beaches in Denmark, Western Australia

Denmark Accommodation

Denmark has many beautiful beaches:

Tree-covered hills, rivers, inlets and the Southern Ocean make Denmark's beaches quite unique. The rugged coastline means there are many separate beaches ending in ancient granite rocks, dune cliffs, or stretches of hills rolling into the ocean. This gives each beach it's own character, aspect, rip and weather conditions. Always swim with a partner and only where it is safe.

  • Ocean Beach (Swimming between the Flags)
    Denmark's closest and most popular beach.
    The Ocean Beach Surf Lifesaving Club is situated at Ocean Beach. Ocean Beach is popular with surfers because of it's great waves. Surfers seen daily. The Denmark Surf Life Saving Club patrol it on weekends from December to March.
  • Lights Beach (Unpatrolled)
    Giant waves buffet the coastline along Lights Beach which is just outside the eastern boundary of William Bay National Park. Lights Beach has three seperate beaches, one with a 'princess pool' where waves crash over rocks, pour down a waterfall and carve a long curving path back to the ocean. Spectacular!
  • Greens Pool (Unpatrolled)
    Safe for families and children due to the rock reef close to shore. Patrolled in summer holidays. Check with visitors centre or shire do be sure.
  • Elephant Cove (Unpatrolled)
    Larger waves than Greens Pool though the shallow sloping beach is great for getting your feet wet.
