About this place
Hamersley Beach is a broad, white sandy beach stretching from the mouth of Hamersley Inlet to a rocky headland near Edwards Point. A short walk from the beach up onto vegetated dunes near Hamersley Inlet offers a sensational view of the beach and its picturesque surroundings. From the rocky headland at the eastern end of the beach, an equally spectacular view across a rolling, white dune field creates another memorable landscape. The beach offers opportunities for fishing and wildlife watching.
The tracks may be closed during wet weather. The beach can also be reached on foot by hiking along the Hakea Trail, which connects Hamersley Inlet campground and picnic area with Cave Point in the east and Quoin Head in the west. Please bring your own drinking water as none is available at this site.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
