The beach path meanders south along the bay to Gnarabup Beach or north past Surfers Point to the river mouth.

Boat ramp, Gnarabup
SURFERS POINT & MAINBREAK
Surfers Point is the internationally acclaimed break that Margaret River is famous for. It is a great vantage point to watch the surfers, kite surfers and windsurfers.
MARGARET RIVER MOUTH
Head north along the beach path to the river mouth for some seriously fun boogie boarding, a surf lesson or canoeing down the river.
I can recommend both Josh Palmeteers Surf Academy and the Bushtucker Canoe and River tour (see tours below).
STAND UP PADDLE BOARD
Heaps of fun for all ages. During the warmer months, you'll find the crew from Margaret River Stand Up Paddling directly in front of the White Elephant.
Board hire and lessons are available to everyone from 8 years of age. Give it a go!
Gnarabup Beach, Gnarabup
GODDESS OF THE ROCK POOLS
Hidden between Surfers Point and the river mouth you’ll find some crystal clear rock pools to explore. You'll also find 'Layla', a beautiful sculpture of the great granddaughter of surf God ‘Huey’ who watches over those who enter the water by Russell Sheridan.
RIFFLEBUTTS KIDDIES PLAYGROUND
Directly in front of the house as you walk towards the beach you’ll find a large park and BBQ area with a great set of slides, swings and climbing gear, along with Russell Sheridan's sculpture, Mans best friend.
