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.
Soft white sand, clear blue water, fresh air, beautiful and peaceful surrounding, sports of all types possible...the beaches around the Denmark Region are reflective of all the best points about life in Australia!
To the West, towards Walpole, is the William Bay National Park and to the East is the West Cape Howe National Park!
Starting with the most popular and easiest to get to, plus the nicest ones to view from the lookouts, the beaches of Denmark Western Australia are truly spectacular. The surf is best at Ocean Beach, and the lagoon of Greens Pool is incredible. Here are the beaches of Denmark WA that we recommend...
(Swimming between the Flags)
Denmark's closest and most popular beach. Just a short drive south of Denmark Town, the Denmark 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. Perfect place to learn to surf with Mike Neunuebel of South Coast Surfing Lessons in the school holidays and throughout summer. This is Denmark's home-beach.
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. Part of the Bibbulmun Track.
Safe for families and children due to the rock reef close to shore. Patrolled in summer holidays. Check with visitors centre or Denmark Shire to be sure. This is truly one of the most magnificent places along the South Coast, the Rainbow Coast. Located in William Bay National Park, west of town (approx 15km), close to Elephant Rocks, Madfish Bay, Waterfall Beach. Truly awesome.Visit Greens Pool
Larger waves than Greens Pool though the shallow sloping beach is great for getting your feet wet between these stone giants. The Elephants of Elephant Rocks are giant rounded boulders, orange and brown, like elephants wading in the cove. This place is truly special.Visit Elephant Rocks
