Anvil Beach is a beautiful beach on the southern side of Nullaki Peninsula on the Great Southern Ocean. It has white sand and a fresh sea breeze, constant surf and plenty of space. From Anvil Beach there are spectacular views west past William Head and out over the southern ocean. The Nullaki Peninsula is the southern boundary of the Wilson Inlet.
Anvil Beach is about a half-hour drive from Denmark town, east around the northern side of the Wilson Inlet, then south and west along the southern side of the Inlet along Eden Drive.
There is a large carpark, but there are no facilities. The trail to Anvil Beach leaves the south side of the carpark and splits. Left, to the lookout; right, to the beach.
The lookout is tremendous (photo above) and with binoculars you can see Ocean Beach and the Ocean Beach Lifesaving Club, looking west across the bay.
The descent to the beach is via a deep, long stairway. Walk left or right from the base of the stairs for an exceptional beach walk. Anvil Beach is one of our favourites.
Safety: Do not swim here! Extra large waves and rips occur at all times of year, all along this stretch of coast. Stay clear of the waterline and watch children at all times. The beach is long, white, clean sand and the waves are a sight to behold. Always Remember, the Great Southern Ocean coastline is prone to surges, so be extremely aware when climbing, driving or walking close to the waterline.
DANGER: Stay clear of costal rocks and the shoreline as this area is prone to extra large waves and surges. There is nothing between this coast and Antarctica. Do not underestimate the power of the ocean. Your safety is your responsibility.
Always Remember, the Great Southern Ocean coastline is prone to surges, so be extremely aware when climbing, driving or walking close to the waterline. Access: Via the South West Highway and on to Nullaki Peninsula. Follow Eden Road to the car park and staircase. SAFETY: NO SWIMMING. Large waves and rips.
