Denmark's spectacular beaches and coastline

Once attached to Antarctica, the Denmark coastline displays some of the oldest rocks in the world in a tumble of boulders, crevices, reefs, bays and pools.

Ocean Beach - great surfing, walking, birdwatching and swimming (between flags only) or just soak up the scenery. Patrolled December-April; lifeguard during summer school holidays. District Map East R6

Wilson Head & Lions Lookout - watch the Southern Ocean swells crash against the rocks. Good fishing but watch for king waves and slippery rocks. District Map East R7

Lights Beach - surfing and fishing but not safe for swimming. A variety of wonderful views and a great alternative to William Bay National Park during busy times. Unpatrolled. District Map East Q6

Greens Pool - a sheltered natural swimming pool of clear emerald water, offering snorkelling and scuba diving. Walk east to Elephant Rocks, or west along the beach to Parry Beach. Ideal for the whole family. Unpatrolled. District Map East O6

Whale watching - July to October

Watching Humpback Whales and Southern Right Whales doing what comes naturally - one of the wonders of the Southern Ocean. There is no guarantee that these fantastic creatures will put in an appearance at any given time or place, but that makes it all the more thrilling when they do.

View from one of nature's grandstands along our rugged coastline, including whale watching lookouts at Conspicuous Cliff and Lowlands Beach, or take a day trip into Albany for a whale cruise.
