Little Bay WA – Your Next Adventure
If you’re craving a little quiet and seclusion on your weekend getaway, we know just the place for you!
Only one hour north of Geraldton and 4.5 km north of Horrocks lies the Little Bay, one of the best lesser-known day-trip and camping sites in WA. Little Bay Beach is perfect for those times when you want to enjoy yourself secluded by large sand dunes and the sounds of crashing waves.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect ‘off-the-grid’ camping spot for the weekend or you want to enjoy the area for the day, Little Bay Beach is the perfect spot. Here you’ll find an overwhelming abundance of natural beauty and a variety of activities and Horrocks experiences that the whole family can enjoy.
How to Get to Little Bay Horrocks
The town of Horrocks is a little less than 500 km north of Perth and not too far from Northampton. Travel just a few kilometres outside of Horrocks and you’ll see the 4WD sign for Little Bay Beach. After you let down your tyres, you’re ready to enjoy the ride along picturesque 4WD tracks that take you to your destination: a quiet bay with sparkling waters, huge, majestic sand dunes that turn to gold in the setting sun, and amazing views of the ocean.
What to Do at Little Bay Beach
No matter your age, you’ll find something to enjoy at Little Bay.
If you’re heading out for the day, pack a picnic lunch and spend some time birdwatching, beach fishing, and enjoying the wildflowers. If you’re up for a bit of a climb, you can find some beautiful views of the beach and the ocean and if the timing’s right, you might even catch a glimpse of some whales.
If you’re eager to get out on the water, the sheltered waters of this gorgeous lagoon are the perfect place to launch your kayak, paddleboard or surfboard, or pack your snorkelling gear and take a peek at the gorgeous aquatic life underneath the waves.
Kids will love to explore the shallow areas of the beach, and they’ll go wild for the enormous sand dunes that surround the bay. Make sure to pack your boogie boards because these dunes will practically beg you to do some sandboarding, there’s even a rope line to make the climb a bit easier.
