Long, sandy beach a few kms south of city centre. Lovely clean water. Small waves good for body surfing or boogie boarding. Easy to find your own piece of paradise. Strongly suggest you go in the morning before the sea breeze comes in.

This three-kilometre beach stretches from the caravan park in the north, to Southgates in the south. On a fine, windless (rare) day, its a pleasant beach, where it's surprisingly possible to walk for some time without spotting another beachgoer. Renewing our acquaintance with this once...More

Another beach in or near Geraldton and full of dogs having a ball running around. The people are friendly too, and it's a pretty big beach area. Looks nice and clean and the waves don't seem too rough.

We took our grandchildren of 5,7 and 9 years in the morning and they all had fun. One body boarded, one jumped the waves and the other built sandcastles. Best free fun around :)

A lovely beach for an early morning walk and at the right time of the year the water is clear for swimming and for children to enjoy. The sea with white horses is attractive when the Southerly blows and the Sunsets are stunning to watch...More

Beautiful place to stop and stretch your legs from the road trip. The beach is dog friendly and has areas for on and off the leash. Because Geraldton is usually quite windy the water is choppy. But always fresh. Somedays you will get more seaweed...More

No, from memory these no overnight camping including in vehicles. There are many caravan parks around Gero but your best bet is to take a drive up to Coranation Beach 30mins north. It was around $5 per site about 5yrs ago... More
