Some useful information we collected specially for you!

Esperance boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia with crystal clear water, brilliant turquoise colours
and the whitest sand in Australia.

A visit to Lucky Bay and Hellfire Bay is a MUST while in Esperance. Experience the long sweeping beaches of squeaky white sand and the brilliant blue colours of the ocean – you may even be lucky enough to encounter a kangaroo on the beach.

Esperance has 110 islands off its coastline – part of the Recherch√© Archipelago which makes Esperance’s coastline scenery spectacular.

Close to the township there are numerous lovely beaches – West Beach, Blue Haven – the most brilliant turquoise of all the beaches, Twilight Beach, and Nine and Eleven Mile Beach where you may find you are one of a very few on the beach.

There is a daily cruise out to Woody Island where you will encounter two different types of seals, sea eagles and always dolphins escorting the cruise boat and whale watching in season.

Once on Woody Island you are greeted with a delicious morning tea and BBQ lunch if staying a full day.

You are invited to join a conducted walking tour of the island or take a glass bottom boat cruise, swim and snorkel or even stay a few nights in their fantastic eco accommodation on the island.
