Always beautiful, with crystal clear blue water. Easy access to the beach with tables and chairs in a shaded picnic area. Easy to sit peacefully and watch the whales pass by.

A cold windy day and yet Meelup Beach excelled in its beauty. Clear blue water and the bonus of spotting whales moving down the coast. This led the chase to follow them along the beautiful coastline. A sheer delight for our visiting eastern states friends.

Meelup is everything you want in a beach. Shade if you like, pristine water, seats trees. Parking and even a coffee van in summer. WHen its hot it gets beyond crowded though.

I reckon the likes of Smiths is a bit better but no denying this is a lovely beach with some tree shade nearby
