We loved Salmon Beach, there’s a small space for the kids to swim and the rocks for fishing. It’s a very scenic beach, we enjoyed looking through the rock pools. We were lucky enough to see an octopus in one of them.

One of the first along the Ocean Drive when heading out of town, this beach is easily accessible and great for a relaxing stroll. Amazing, just like all beaches down here.

Getting down to the beach via the stairs was good but the number of steps made it a bit of a challlenge coming back up. The views made it worthwhile though.

Just the Esperance side of Twilight Beach this beach has everything. Try a short drive from here at dusk. Take a glass of wine and you are in one of Australia's and indeed the worlds best locations. Superb

Just another fantastic beach all part of this fantastic coastline. Fair chance to get a wave here for surfers on good days as well. Can get quite rough on bad days too , easy access from the carpark , good photo opportunities here as well.

One of the best spots along the road, sheltered from the wing, safe swiming, rock or beach fishing. A great place out of the wing to waste a few hours

Salmon Beach which they claim is good for fishing is one of the prettier beaches along the coast and has a rocky foreshore and a small section at the west end which has sand. A large rocky outcrop sits at the west end making it...More
