Mandalay Beach is well worth a visit. With spectacular views to Chatham Island, spectacular coastline and long white sandy beach
it is a must-see. View the Map to Mandalay Beach below or Videograph.
The Boardwalk from the Mandalay Beach lookout onto Mandalay Beach is part of the Bibbulmun Track.
Chatham Island and Rock Formations
Access to the beach is along a dune-side boardwalk which descends, in several flights, to the sand. The view from the boardwalk is spectacular. The beach is named for the three-masted Norwegian Barque "Mandalay" which was beached on the 15th of May 1911. The captain managed to beach the vessel and all aboard were saved.
The shipwreck appears every few (10) years as the beach erodes and then covers her again.

There are several things about Mandalay beach to consider. There is a donation box with an entry fee for the National Park.
There are toilets but no picnic benches. The last 8k or so approaching the carpark for Mandalay Beach is on an unsealed road (dirt track) but is ok for regular vehicles including standard 2wd vehicles.

Mandalay Beach has a path that takes you over the rocks on the northern side of the beach (right side) and offers amazing views of the large waves crashing along the coast. BE CAREFUL and stay clear of the waterline.
