Just when we thought Western Australia’s coastline couldn’t get any more stunning, Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool, Denmark WA turned it on for us.

This Denmark beach is stunning

These are Western Australia’s most iconic beaches and are known for their granite rock formations which are said to look like a herd of elephants. As well as being beautiful, we found these two beaches to be the perfect place for a family to enjoy time by the beach and go swimming.

You will find Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool in the William Bay National Park, which is a top spot for swimming, snorkelling, and diving.

The west coast of Australia really needs to stop showing off. This region is a picture postcard of clear emerald waters, pure white sand, and giant elephant-like sculptures that make the perfect shelter for the bay.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the beaches in Western Australia are probably the best we’ve seen on this trip around Australia.

What is the best time to visit Elephant Rocks?

Elephant Rocks is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Western Aus so we recommend going as early as possible to avoid the crowds.

Not only does this mean you get the beach almost to yourself, but you will find it easier to park since the car park is small.

During peak hours (8am – 3pm) you will see cars parked for 1km down the road outside the car park.

Our Experience at Elephant Rocks, Denmark

The Elephant Rocks is a recognisable landmark in Denmark. They are huge sloping rocks that are said to look like the backs of the elephants playing in the water, though it takes some imagination to see it.

The huge boulders are great for climbing on and have small crevasses to hold on to, but do be careful as the wind can be quite strong in the bay. Try to visit on a wind-free day for safety.
