The Best Beaches in Australia to Set Foot On

Red Rock Beach

Red Rock is about a 30 minute drive north of Coffs Harbour and is one of those hidden gems that is tucked away 6 km’s off the Pacific Highway. It’s a beautiful sweeping beach with an impressive headland and these red coloured rocks that lead you into to the crystal clear water.

Twilight Beach Esperance, Western Australia 

The beaches of Esperance are rated among the best in the world – and Twilight Bay is one of the towns most loved. Popular for families, Twilight Bay offers safe swimming and idyllic conditions. Fishing is also a common activity.

Bondi Beach, Sydney, Australia.

This ocean beach is as beautiful as the people who flock to it, often wearing little more than their SPF 50+.

Cottesloe Beach

Cottesloe Beach is by far the most popular and well-known beach in Perth, and for good reason. Cott has clean white sand and beautiful clear turquoise water, but what makes it stand out from the crowd are the grassed terraces and park behind the beach. Across the road from the beach you’ll find a row of cafes, surf shops, pubs and restaurants

Bells Beach, Torquay, Victoria, Australia

Bells Beach, located near Torquay on the southern coast of Victoria in the Great Ocean Road region. Head to Bells Beach over the Easter weekend and watch the world’s best surfers carve up the waves at the Rip Curl Pro Surfing Competition

Whitehaven Beach, Australia

Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, Whitehaven Beach is one of the world’s most unspoiled and beautiful beaches. Whitehaven Beach is protected by the Whitsunday Islands National Park, and in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Broome beach, Broome, Western Australia

This world famous beach gets so much attention that I wonder how many tourists are aware of the other Broome beaches.

Shell Beach Monkey Mia, Shark Bay, Western Australia.

This beautiful snow-white beach is made up of millions of tiny shells up to 10 metres deep and stretching for over 70 kilometres. There is no sand, only shells!

Shell Beach is one of only a handful of places on earth where shells replace beach sand in such a dramatic and picturesque way. A walk on Shell Beach is like no other. Incredibly, the beach is made up of shells from the Shark Bay cockle, making it truly unique.
