Wanneroo’s beaches stretch from Claytons beach at Mindarie in the South, up to Two Rocks in the North. A total of 32kms of white sand, natural beach dunes and opportunities to swim, surf, play and fish.
There are some great surf spots along the coast, some only known to the locals. Mainly around Yanchep, including “Rafts” where the small reef provides right and left breaking waves about 150 days a year and “The Spot”. The Spot is north of Yanchep and is a popular break providing long barreling left hand waves. There is a beach break to the north that provides fast fun for the body boarders too!
Wanneroo has a number of spectacular beaches, but some are quite remote and can be prone to rips and currents. Always be aware of beach safety, swimming between the flags on a patrolled beach and never swimming alone. Check Beachsafe website for more information.

Mindarie Marina proves an excellent spot to catch Herring and Tailor. Casting at first light is optimal.
