A few kilometres south of Lancelin and one-and-a-half hours’ drive north of Perth is Ledge Point, the quieter alternative to Lancelin.
You can 4WD south along the beach or explore the 4WD tracks (and sand dunes) of Lancelin to your north.
The sand around here can get quite soft, so make sure you lower your tyre pressure down to a suitable PSI. Be careful around some of the heads of the beach where the land comes closer to the ocean, as it can get quite boggy and steep.
If you’ve enjoyed Lancelin before, this could be a great sea-change, giving you the chance to explore new coastline and fish in a quieter location. For an overnight stay you have the choice of a Big 4 caravan park, as well as beachfront villas and houses suitable for families.
Head up Indian Ocean Drive until you reach Ledge Point Road, which will take you into the town centre. Smaller roads will lead you down to the beach.
