Our third day was a very cold, wet and windy day which for me coming from the tropics was a treat. We spent the morning exploring the Margaret River Township with its many delightful stores and artisan shops, art galleries, bakeries and eateries. Of course I managed to find some great gifts to take home.
At lunch time we met up at the Margaret River Brewery for lunch where I shared a very Italian style delicious pizza and washed it down with 3 pony beers, including stout, lager and ginger ale beer. What a fabulous place with an amazing atmosphere, great food and wonderful beers. And it was so warm and cozy inside.
After lunch we headed over to Prevelly Beach. Home to Margaret River Pro competition and the international surfing circuit this beach has you covered. From parking to walking trails and from pavilions with picnic tables to grassy lawns, there’s room to enjoy a sunset, launch your board, or be a bystander. Prevelly surfing beach is popular among locals and tourists, plus is on the top ten for Margaret River. If you want to watch surfers or kite surfers or sailboarding this is the place to enjoy it. The is the best spot for watching these water/surf sports. It is great for the active and not so active with beautiful walking paths to the river mouth. The views from here over looking the ocean are spectacular. There is a great viewing deck near the car park where there is ample parking. From here there are wooden stairs down to the beach.
Located adjacent to the mouth of the Margaret River, this is a pretty and interesting rocky beach and surfing point with great scenery on a rugged coastline. The park and amenities are well set up and this is a nice part of the coast which is generally very beautiful.
The community / council has done a really good job developing a wide cement walkway along the foreshore dotted with steel sculptures and information panels adding interest. It is certainly a nice spot for a walk, with plenty of joggers and walkers taking advantage of the pathway.
The sand is beautiful and the sea very clear with little pools where you can have a swim.
It was a very lovely way to pass some time on this very chilly and windy day.
I just love this beach for the interesting bay, white sand, exciting ocean, surfing and rugged landscape. A great place to chill on the beach or watch the ocean from the boardwalk and picnic on the grass where there are electric bbq’s provided for free use by the local council.
