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, the perfect place to relax and take a deep breath of beautiful fresh ocean air. The perfect grassy area overlooking the waves, seated look-out area, an undercover pavilion, Surf Club, toilets and showers, make this a an around favourite!
Ocean Beach is great for swimming and surfing. During the summer season Ocean Beach is patrolled and the cafe is open, serving delcious food! Always a relaxed vibe with the beach goers. Some surf, some swim, some rock climb, some kite surf, some walk, some sun bathe, some bodyboard, some paddle, some kayak, some stand up paddleboard...but all enjoy Ocean Beach.
From the Look-Out there are fantastic views of the beach surf as well as the calm darker waters of the Wilson Inlet. The lookout (just before Ocean Beach) overlooks the channel between the Wilson Inlet and the ocean (when opened), and is ideally placed to check out the surf. You can see the Nullaki Penisula beautifully, and its impressive sand dunes and its dramatic edge.
Visit the Look-Out by turning left at Prawn Rock Channel up the hill, (signposted). This is also a great place to watch the channel being dug to let the Wilson Inlet discharge to the sea, which happens once a year.
The Denmark Surf Life Saving Club is located at Ocean Beach. The clubhouse sits on the dunes above the break. The DSLSC patrol Ocean Beach 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 opposite the Club.
The beach is a popular surfing spot with a lookout and grassed areas to watch the action. The surf at Ocean Beach is ideal for beginners and novice surfers as the waves wrap around the headland creating beautiful waves for surfing.
We are also lukcy to have the most amazing Surf instructor here in Denmark, so why not learn to surf or enrol the children in this fabulous and fun skill while you are here! Mike Neunuebel, originally from California, is personable and highly experienced.
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. The break off of an open channel is usually fantastic.
