Information

Australia's best beach 2022 - as named by Tourism Australia. See website link for details.
Misery Beach sits 15 minutes south of Albany and five hours southeast of Perth, and is small — sitting in a bay spanning 200 metres. Like many of WA's beaches it includes crystal clear, turquoise water and virgin white sand but what is less usual about this WA beach is that it is bounded by spectacular granite outcrops.

Up until this announcement the beach has been fairly unknown and only a handful of beachcombers, swimmers or kayakers come here. But you're likely to see seals, dolphins and even whales.

So why the name? Australia's last active whaling station operated nearby until 1978, and for decades, this shoreline was often awash with whale offal and blood.
