G’day Mate! Top 10 Beaches of Western Australia

Posted by Jody on August 9, 2011

We’ll need to have a pretty substantial shell bag for a day at this beach!  It’s a 110 kilometer (68.3508311 mile) stretch of beach made up entirely of seashells. Literally, billions upon billions of cockle shells piled up to 33 feet deep form this treasure beach, aptly named Shell Beach.  Seriously, how would any sheller choose their take-home treasures at this beachcomber’s paradise?

Or, imagine eighty miles (128.7470 km) 😉 of uninterrupted pristine white sand shoreline known for incredible sunsets and the turquoise splendor of the Indian Ocean. This stretch of coast also features a variety of colorful sea shells and a low beach comber density.  This amazing treasure beach is quite simply named Eighty Mile Beach.

I tend to trust official tourism sites.  It seems to me that they must really have to do their homework, because I figure that they have to be totally prepared to defend their choices to all of the disappointed beaches left off their list.  Shell Beach and Eighty Mile Beach are just two of the “Top 10 Beaches” of Western Australia‘s tourism site.

According to, Esperance is a real beach lover’s beach, ideal for swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and sandboarding. They tell us:  “This place is so relaxed even the kangaroos sun bake on the beach.”  It may not be the best day trip for someone who just landed at the airport, though.  It’s a nine-hour drive from Perth.

If you’re already in Perth, no worries, City Beach and Cottesloe Beach are also on the Top 10 Beaches of Western Australia list.

Rounding out the Top 10 Beaches of Western Australia are Turquoise Bay, Cable Beach, Green’s Pool, Scarborough, and Monkey Mia.  I suggest you check them all out!  The website has amazing descriptions and beautiful photos to entice you.

Let’s see. That will be 26 1/2 hours of travel time, at the very least, from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Perth, WA, Australia.   I think we’d better pack some extra sammies.    -J-
