Anvil Beach near Denmark, WA

Anvil Beach on Nullaki Peninsula

Nullaki Peninsula in Denmark, WA

Anvil Beach is a rugged and stunning beach on the southern side of Nullaki Peninsula on the Great Southern Ocean. It has white sand and a fresh sea breeze, constant surf and plenty of space. Enclosed by headlands, the bay is clear and beautiful.

From Anvil Beach there are spectacular views west past William Head and out over the southern ocean. The Nullaki Peninsula is the southern boundary of the Wilson Inlet and is a protected conservation area.

To get into the Nullaki reserve, you have to go through a public gated area which separates Nullaki from the mainland. After driving through the gate you still have a few kms drive to the beach.

Follow Eden Road and the signs for Anvil Beach and the Anvil Beach carpark. There is a large carpark at the top of the stairs, but there are no facilities.

On Anvil Beach

The trail to Anvil Beach begins at the south side of the carpark, and within a fewe meters splits into two paths. Left, head upwards to the lookout; right, down to the beach. A short pathway and steep set of stairs are the only access on to the beach.

Head left or right from the base of the stairs for an exceptional beach walk. Anvil Beach is one of the lcoal favourites!

Lookout!

The lookout is tremendous (photo above) and with binoculars you can see Ocean Beach and the Ocean Beach Lifesaving Club if you look west across the bay. The lookout at Anvil Beach is one of the best places to see an old catch-phrase of Denmark being the place "where the forests meet the sea".

Anvil Beach is long, white and clean, and the waves are a sight to behold. Sometimes you may be lucky enough to see dolphins just off the shore, and whales in whale watching season.

East along the rocky shore

If you walk East along the beach you will come to a granite rock path, once climbed over you come into a second secluded beach, with a rock cave, crystal clear water and plenty to explore. Children love it here!

Once on this beach you will see the 'anvil' shaped rock in the ocean, where the beach gets it's name.
