Meaning “place of love” in the Wardandi aboriginal language, Yallingup Beach couldn’t be better named. The wide sands here gently slope into the lapping waves of the Indian Ocean, the beach faces west, making it an ideal spot for a sundowner or romantic cuddle at sun set.
The beach is reached via a concrete staircase leading down from the car park to the white sands. By the car park visitors will find a children’s playground, while to the left of the staircase is a wave-free lagoon ringed by a shallow reef.
Considered by some a the birthplace of surfing in Australia, the beach and reefs provides perfect waves for surfers, as well as the potential to snorkel.
Dogs are partly welcomed onto Yallingup Beach, on the well-marked section north of Dawson Drive. This is the entrance you’ll want to use anyway if you want to avoid fees to enter the National Park that surrounds it.
The beach offers showers and barbeque facilities, and there is a large holiday park just a step back from its sands.
