Eighty Mile Beach is the longest stretch of beach on the WA coastline at a grand 220km! The beach forms part of the marine park which provides internationally significant feeding grounds for small migratory wading birds. The expansive tidal flats, seagrass meadows, coral reefs and mangroves provides ideal habitat for invertebrates to flourish and feed these migratory birds, as well as a great diversity of permanent residents including the endemic flatback turtle that also nests here.
The roar of the incoming tide swallowing the land wakes you up in the early hours of the morning but by the time the sun has risen it is retreating again, leaving wonderful drainage patterns to explore in the sand. These trails encourage you to wander for miles, beach combing along the way in deserted serenity. But be warned, the endless privacy is short lived when a string of 4WDs make their way up the beach. If you were enjoying a spot of nude fossicking you will soon learn that on an endlessly flat beach there is nowhere to hide!
