A formed path provides easy access to this delightful beach where the rocks have been sculpted by nature into intriguing shapes. The wave-washed surfaces of these weathered schists show delightful detail in alternating bands of light and dark minerals that include glistening mica and small deep pink garnets. A lookout with seating on the path is a good vantage point to enjoy the views and spot whales and their newborn young during winter when they may shelter close to shore.
Walks at West Beach
From West Beach enjoy a moderately easy walk along part of the Hakea Trail, which follows the coast west towards Hamersley Inlet or east to Cave Point lookout (2.5km return).
