Gnarabup Beach is the longest and most popular swimming beach in Prevelly and spans from the southern headland in the south to Surfer’s Point in the north.
Gnarapub Beach starts at the southern end with a large limestone cliff. The lookout on top of the cliff offer spectacular views over the beach and Surfers Point and the Rivermouth in the distance. The beach itself tends to have much smaller waves than elsewhere in Prevelly but tips steeply into the ocean.
The White Elephant Beach Cafe (Click for external link – new tab) is a great place to eat. Fantastic views, sheltered, and not too busy.
Gnarabup – Gas Bay
Along Walcliffe Road past Gnarabup Beach is Gas Bay, next to Grunters. It is a challenging wave capable of breaking boards but also offering nice barrels.
Prevelly – Surfers Point
Surfers Point Prevelly is the reason Margaret River has grown from a tiny outback town to a region filled with the spirit of adventure. If you are an experienced surfer, you will already know why you are stopping here. If you want to see surfing, this is the spot to watch the way Australians handle some of the best Indian Ocean waves.
Probably the most famous big wave spot in Australia. The wave breaks both left and right, though the left is the best, over a fairly shallow rock ledge and on the biggest of days it can produce a 25ft drop down it’s very steep face and into the bowl below followed by a long walling ride into the channel, assuming you made the drop!
