Emu Point Beach

Officially rated as one of the cleanest beaches in Western Australia, Emu Point Beach is located on the state’s southern coast close to the town of Albany. A small beach by Australian standards, it helps guard the narrow inlet of Frenchman Bay linking Oyster Harbour to King George Sound.

The beaches mix of grassy landscaping shaded by mature trees and calm shallow waters make it ideal for families, who can enjoy a picnic on the lawns before taking a relaxed dip in the ocean.

Emu Point Beach is also popular for fishing. Boats head out to capture the likes of garfish, skippy, and squid, returning to feed the resident pelicans, rather than emus, with the offcuts. Named after a survey ship that reached this point on the coast in 1815, hungry humans can make use of the beachside café.
