A beautiful spot to visit a caravan park is in walking distance to the beach ...I would recommend booking in advance was very busy ...the stingrays come so close to the shore you can feed them ...was amazing to see them up close .

We were travelling around the Margaret river region, and stopped at most of the scenic spots. This was a beautiful place to stop, The beach was clean, and the area nice for tourists. If in the area, I would recommend a stop,

I would recommend visiting this place mostly for historical reasons , since you can still see a ramp built in the late 1880s where the British used to load timber to ship to England. Parts of the ramp are still there today!

Visited in January and we were greated with loads of Rays. Only stayed for half an hour as we had plenty to fit in to the day, however this was one of the highlights.

Nice beach! Unfortunately we didn't see any stingrays. We searched for a while, and everyone was searching but nothing. Not sure if it was because of the time of year.

The scenery was beautiful and the sun was there to greet us however, we were not so lucky in seeing the rays. Due to the recent weather a large amount of seaweed had been washed ashore and was rather smelly in places. This did not...More

I believe the stingrays hang around the beach all through the day. There are no specific times to see them. They are protected in the bay so they tend to hang around a lot. Hope that helps 👍☺️
