Eagle Bay accommodation – Sparkling and glamorous

Eagle Bay’s long stretch of white sandy beach and stunning azure waters have a Mediterranean feel but without the crowds and the paparazzi.

The rich and famous will be here but you will hardly notice them, as this 1.5km-stretch of beach offers a lot of room for privacy, as well as being dotted with rocky coves and little sheltered spots at the far ends of the beach.

The residential and holiday accommodation at Eagle Bay is mainly high-end and upmarket, however the streetscapes are surprisingly unassuming and have a relaxed appeal that will make everyone feel right at home. For Eagle Bay holiday homes with that luxurious touch, Private Properties have the place for you.

Things To Do in Eagle Bay
  • Calm waters

    Located almost at the tip of Cape Naturaliste in Geographe Bay, the beach is not only calm and protected but its abundance of marine life and shallow, sheltered waters provide a perfect environment for snorkelling. Of course, the swimming and fishing is also great.

  • Whales and wildlife

    Families will love everything about Eagle Bay, and nature lovers will enjoy the abundance of wildlife and wonderful opportunities for viewing whales and wildflowers in winter and spring.

    The nearby Meelup Regional Park and its magnificent bushland and wildlife habitat add to the beauty of this very special part of the coast.

    Take the walk trail from the heart of Eagle Bay to the stunning Meelup Beach and picnic area for a fantastic day out. The ice-cream van may even be there.

  • Diving wreck

    Divers will love the HMAS Swan Dive Wreck, which is considered a world-class site. The HMAS Swan is laid to rest in 30 metres of water off Meelup Beach, and the protected waters of the bay enable the site to be visited by divers for most of the year.

  • Nearest shopping


    There’s no shopping to speak of, not even a corner store at Eagle Bay, so be prepared to stock up the fridge and pantry in advance of your arrival so you don’t have to head to the shops.

    If you don’t feel like cooking, there are many restaurants and cafes out of town that provide breakfasts, lunches and dinners, particularly in the nearest town of Dunsborough.

    Why not call in a chef or have some prepared meals delivered to your door? Mealup Everyday Cafe and Olsen’s Catering are a great start.
