Lucky Bay, Cape Le Grand National Park

22 Dec Ideal Beachside Camping – Lucky Bay, Cape Le Grand National Park, WA

Dubbed as Australia’s whitest beach, Lucky Bay is a site to behold on a hot summer day. The sands glow white making the turquoise water bluer and more enticing than ever. And yes, the water is perfect for swimming! The pictures you take won’t do it justice so it’s best to sit back, relax, and enjoy the postcard-worthy view while you’re there.

Lucky Bay is located in Cape Le Grand National Park. It’s a 40-minute drive from Esperance.

Attractions

Lucky Bay and the surrounding beaches! The entire 200km stretch is covered with gorgeous white sand beaches. Lucky Bay just happens to be the most popular because of its powdery sand and perfect location. The bay itself is 5km and you’re sure to find your spot in that stretch.

Camping, lounging around, and swimming are the main activities here. Apart from that, there isn’t much to do except strolling on the beach, perhaps a bit of fishing, and getting friendly with the local kangaroos.

Other water activities like kayaking, snorkelling, and canoeing are possible (actually the bay is ideal for these) but the beach is unpatrolled. Consult the Beachsite website before attempting any activities.

If you find yourself with a lot of time and really want to catch some fish, you have to head outside of Lucky Bay. Popular fishing spots include: Wharton Beach, Duke of Orleans Bay, Alexander Bay, and Duke of Arid among others. The lot of these places can be accessed by a 4WD only so it’s best to check with the Visitors Centre first before heading out.

There are walking paths beyond the beach that are great for exploring the area further. The views of the Recherche archipelago from these trails are excellent and if you’re there at the right time of the year (July-October), you just might see some of the migratory whales making their way through.

Camping tips

The camping ground at Lucky Bay fills up easily and they don’t take bookings so you have to arrive early if you want to secure a place. The camping ground is usually full by 10AM so that’s something to remember. It might be a bit of a struggle trying to camp here but being so close to the beach and hearing the waves crashing as you fall asleep (and waking up to the sound of those same waves!) make it worth the early morning trip going there.

Another thing to remember is that solid fuel appliances are not allowed and campfires are also prohibited. You may, however, use your liquid fuel stoves unless there is a total fire ban.

Where to camp

Lucky Bay has two campgrounds –one for tents and one for caravans. There are about 22 campsites in total but mind you, they are quite close together.

You’ll love that are toilets and solar-heated showers. That’s something you don’t typically get in a camping ground! There’s also a camp kitchen which has gas BBQ, burners, untreated hot and cold water, and a sink.

There is a fee to get into the national park which currently stands at $12 per vehicle with 12 occupants and $5.50 per additional person. It is unclear whether the camping grounds at Lucky Bay are paid.
