Greens Pool is a popular swimming destination.

Fifteen kilometers to the west of Denmark is a beautiful, magical beach called Greens Pool in William Bay National Park. Almost completely sheltered from the waves of the Great Southern Ocean by the rounded rock boulders typical to this area, Greens Pool is paradise.

Walking into the water, you will notice the long gradual slope, allowing children of all ages to experience the ocean in an safe and comfortable environment.

The expansively white beach stretches west, endlessly out of sight, far past the rock guardians of the rock pool across Williams Bay and Mazzoletti Beach. Greens Pool is one of the most popular destinations in Denmark, WA.

What makes Greens pool so divine?

Green’s Pool is surrounded by gradually sloping rock formations cut with small crevasses and pools – perfect for children young and old.

The calm waters of Greens Pool are very clearly seen in this video of Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool from Tower Hill. The video starts with the backs of the elephants, and pans west (right) to Greens Pool.

On days when the wind is apparent, the rocks make a perfect shelter for enjoying a wind-free day at the beach.

Many an adventurer has been seen jumping from the single square-topped boulder in the centre of the pool. If you are in to snorkeling, the wave-less waters make it easy to spot multitudes of fish of all sizes – from hand size schools to large sting-rays.

To the east, the sloping rocks increase in size and height as they move towards Elephant Rocks and Elephant Cove just a short walk across the headland.

Rainbow Coast Tips

There are two car parks at Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks. Both have access to Greens Pool, so remember which flight of stairs you descended.

The Great Southern Ocean can be a few degrees colder than the other oceans, so if you intend to snorkel we recommend a wet suit.

Greens Pool is on the William Bay National Park Map Located 15k West of Denmark along the South Coast Highway.

There are less flies on the rocks to the west of the beach than on the beach itself.
