In Denmark Region of Western Australia
Ocean Beach, Denmark, Western Australia

Ocean Beach is set between the Wilson Inlet and the Great Southern Ocean. Easily accessed, only a few kilometres outside Denmark along Ocean Beach Road.

Ocean Beach is a must-visit while in Denmark. Take a deep breath of the beautiful, clean fresh air coming off the Southern Ocean.

Ocean Beach, Denmark, WA

The beach is a very popular surfing spot and a great place to learn to surf. From the lookout you'll see how good the waves are. This is a safe beach to learn to surf.

Ocean Beach is the best surf location in and around Denmark, Western Australia.

Ocean Beach Channel Open

Walking along the beach to the east you will either find a sand-bar taking you to the Nullaki peninsula... or an open channel from the Wilson Inlet (right) where the dark waters pour into the ocean. It depends on what time of year you visit!

Ocean Beach Sandbar across the Wilson Inlet

Ocean Beach closes the Wilson Inlet each year.


Ocean Beach is extremely popular because it's just beautiful!  Also, the shallow waters and sand bar make it a popular swimming location on the coast. Thankfully the Denmark Surf Life Saving Club patrolls the beach!

For much of the year Ocean Beach stretches the lengh of the bay onto Nullaki Peninsula, separating the Wilson Inlet from the ocean. This lengthens the beach considerably making is a wonderful place to walk and enjoy the sea air.

Sometimes the water flows from the inlet into a receeding tide, making the surfice smoothe as satin. This happens only when the channel is open.
