    Yallingup is a small sea-side village positioned on a hillside with commanding views out over the Indian Ocean. Holiday life is very relaxed. There are no bustling shops or noisy arcades in the heart of Yallingup just a laid-back mix of residential homes, holiday houses, a caravan park, cafe and small shop for essential provisions only.

    Yallingup’s natural reef means there is a section of the beach, Yallingup Lagoon, where the waters are calm and protected from large waves. This is a perfect haven for snorkellers, small children or anyone wanting a gentle dip.

  • World-class surfing

    Yallingup’s new nature-based playground (pictured) — complete with a large painted concrete wave and misting water sprays, an adventure hut and a tunnel slide — will be a favourite with younger children.

    Located on a large grassy area overlooking the beach, this amazing playground is flanked on either side by a great barbecue and picnic area so it’s a fantastic spot for watching sunsets and finishing up a day at the beach.

  • Coastal walks and dramatic scenery

    The coastline around Yallingup is dramatic, with jagged rocks and high cliff faces buffering the wildness of the Indian Ocean. There are many high vantage points close to Yallingup for watching surfers, sunsets, whales and wildlife.

    People from all over the world come to trek sections of the 135 kilometre-long Cape to Cape Track, and Yallingup is one of the few towns right on the designated coastal walk. The Friends of the Cape to Cape Track website has information to help you plan your trek.

    Be sure to visit the awesome Canal Rocks, a series of protruding granite rocks and outcrops that have formed a natural ‘canal’ that is quite breathtaking to see, especially when the swell is high. Walk across a footbridge to experience the rush of the ocean below your feet.

    Beneath the limestone ridge which forms Cape Naturaliste is Ngilgi Cave (pronounced Nil-gi), with its striking display of stalagmite, stalactite, helictite and shawl formations. The cave is located just two kilometres out of Yallingup and you can book fascinating tours and nature trail walks from the office, or set off on a self-guided tour of the caves.
