Nanarup Beach is off-the-beaten-track yet well worth a visit. Travel north-east from Albany City Centre and cross the Oyster Harbour bridge towards Nanarup and Two Peoples Bay.
Nanarup Beach is a popular fishing and four-wheel driving location. There is a long beautiful white sandy beach at Nanarup. With picnic and barbecues and easy stairway access, it's a delightful place to stop for lunch.
The Taylor Inlet discharges through Nanarup Beach and can also be explored from the carpark. Several sets of picnic benches as well as toilet facilities are located at the entrance to Nanarup Beach. There is a lookout which you can access from the eastern side of the beach. This cannot be seen from the entry boardwalk but only accessed from on the beach. This is a good place to see whales in season (bring your binoculars).
Four-wheel drive vehicles can access the beach alongside the Taylor Inlet at the carpark. Vehicles are not permitted on the western side of the beach, but fully-kitted four-wheel-drive vehicles can drive from Nannarup Beach all the way north-east to Two Peoples Bay along the beach.
Please note that there is no swimming in the Inlet.
