Known for its remote coastal scenery, the bays and coastline around the Coffin Bay National Park are ideal for boating, fishing, sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing. You can explore the park’s coastal landscapes of high windswept cliffs and massive dunes, pounding surf beaches and sheltered sandy bays.

At the southern end of the park is Yangie Bay, accessible by 2WD. It’s an ideal place to paddle your canoe, enjoy a bush picnic or explore a coastal bushwalking trail. Point Avoid and Golden Island lookout can also be reached by sealed road and you’ll be rewarded with spectacular island views along the way.

The pristine northern beaches of Coffin Bay National Park are only accessible by high-clearance 4WD. A favourite destination for anglers, birdwatchers and surfers, this remote and beautiful area offers several secluded camping areas with easy beach access.
