If you are looking for a beach holiday destination in Paradise then look no further than Esperance in South Western Australia. The beaches are unbelievably white and uncrowded. The water is an inviting azure colour and the scenery is out of this world.
Thistle Cove – Esperance
Thistle Cove is one of a number of acclaimed beaches in Cape Le Grande National Park and, despite this, it is seldom crowded. Not only is the beach spectacular but so is the surrounding bushland and granite headlands.
Esperance is home to just under ten thousand people and its major industries are tourism, agriculture and fishing. The main crops grown in the region are wheat and to a lesser extent canola. If you time your visit right, the roads leading to Esperance are line with fields of gold and yellow as the wheat ripens and the canola plants blossom.
Albany, Western Australia
Albany is less than five hours drive from Perth and is an excellent stopover for anyone visiting Esperance. I only spent a day in Albany and decided that it is a destination well worth visiting in future.
Frenchman Peak – Esperance
Visitors to the Esperance region should set aside time to drive to Frenchman Peak and hike to the cave that is close to its summit.
