Australia's whitest beach, Lucky Bay, is also one of Western Australia's most idyllic; the biggest jewel in a string of stunning beaches along the coast of Cape Le Grand National Park and Esperance. Its squeaky-clean sand, turquoise water, perfect swimming conditions and breathtaking views of the Recherche Archipelago regularly put it at the top of Australia's best beach list. Even the kangaroos can't resist lazing on the sand here.
A 40-minute drive east from Esperance gets you to Lucky Bay in the Cape le Grand National Park. Alternatively, you can join a four wheel drive or Indigenous cultural and eco tour running daily from Esperance.
The bay stretches for five kilometres, and with no crowds to battle you're guaranteed to find your own slice of paradise to relax or cast a fishing line.
Venture beyond the beach and you'll find some excellent walking tracks, many offering sweeping views of the wildlife-rich Recherche Archipelago. Be sure to keep an eye out for migrating whales between July and October.
The caravan and camp grounds in the national park offer picnic areas, solar-heated showers and toilets, ideal for spending a night or two under a star-filled sky and strolling along the moonlit bay.
