What is there not to love about Esperance? If it’s a great tourist destination, it’s even better as a home town!
My beautiful town in Western Australia is blessed with clean beaches, turquoise waters, untouched islands and colour-filled wildflower country.
Among its most famous beauty spots is Australia’s whitest beach, Lucky Bay. Set against a stunning seascape of 110 islands of the Recherche Archipelago, even the kangaroos can’t resist lounging here.
The calm, clear waters of Blue Haven Beach and Twilight Cove, just a short drive from town, are idyllic spots for swimming and snorkelling. The lagoon just east of West Beach is worth a snorkel too.
If you’re seeking waves, hit the surf at West Beach, Fourth Beach or Observatory Beach. To hook dinner, throw in a line at Tanker Jetty and keep a keen eye out for cheeky local, Sammy the seal.
All in all, I think Esperance is where I’ll still be for a lo-o-o-ong while!
