Lucky Bay

Lucky Bay is reputed to be Australia’s whitest beach, making it an idyllic beach to visit with its pristine sand and aquamarine water. Views from the beach look out across the Recherche Archipelago, adding further to the natural beauty.

Stretching for 5km, Lucky Bay is one of a series of beaches and coves along the Cape Le Grand National Park coastline. You’ll usually have the beach almost to yourself, making it even more alluring, although you may have to share it with kangaroos that also drop by looking to cool off.

It’s a good spot for swimming, fishing and whale watching between July and October.

Located 45 minutes’ drive southeast of Esperance, there is an entrance fee to the national park (currently AUS $15 per car) which has camp grounds, picnic areas, toilets and solar-heated showers.
