Greens Pool Experience
This gem of a destination was awesome! Kids had so much fun exploring the rocks and waterways, while dad jumped off the rocks.
I had such a relaxing time here at Greens Pool sprawled out on the white sandy beach. We had peace of mind that the kids were safe playing around and I could read a book even!
The beach here is beautiful. Smooths boulder-like rocks dotted all along the coastline. For some more adventure, you only had a short stroll over to Elephant Rocks which was amazing and so picturesque. Make sure you have heaps of room left on your camera and you try to visit on a sunny day.
There is so much to do in this area so you will never get bored. Bushwalking the trails nearby, ocean surf beaches for all you surfers, and a meadery just up the road called Bartholomews. Amazing wine!
Try to visit off-peak because it can get crowded. Weekends and school holidays are probably the worst time.
Slip. Slop. Slap!
Visiting Greens Pool WA Verdict
Make sure you mark this hot destination on your to-do list for around Australia.
It was a definite highlight and we will never forget the wonderful time we had there.
It is so easy to get to and relaxing, the only downside is that you can’t camp right at it. But if that was allowed it would probably ruin the area, so thank god!
Enjoy Greens Pool WA it is awesome.
