Looking East down Frenchman Bay Beach.

Frenchman Bay is one of the few places in the world where you can relax on a white sandy beach, swim, snorkel, enjoy stunning ocean views and witness the awesome spectacle of the annual whale migration. Named because Nicholas Boudin the French explorer berthed here in 1803.

Frenchman Bay Beach is great throughout the year, from the Whale Watching season you see humpback and southern right whales, July August and September, watch them migrate from the beach, awesome. Then Spring Summer and autumn when you can relax, take a walk, swim, snorkel, or just laze on the beach. It was once a Norwegian Whaling station, all Whaling stopped in Albany in November 1978. What I like is you can be having breakfast in Perth it’s 9 am and 37 C or 100 F old scale, get in the car and 5 hours later be swimming here and on average it will be a beautiful 10 C lower at 27 C. I do this all the time but of course I am only a 20 minute drive from Albany. The beach is close to Torndirrup National Park, The Gap, Natural Rock Bridge and Whale World. There are BBQ’s toilets and a car park right by the beach. This beach is not controlled by D.E.C.K. so it’s easy to get to and you don’t have to walk kilometres unless you want to! Good for the oldies the kids and all in the middle.

Fishing.

Main species are Herring, Skippy, Whiting, Squid Garfish Pike and Silver Bream.
