general information

Meelup is a picturesque beach found on the north-east side of Cape Naturaliste. The stunning blue water at Meelup is popular with families over the flat summer months. During the wild winter months Meelup remains mostly flat, with only the largest swells of the year making it into this protected bay. The wave is a weak left-hander that wraps around the northern end of the bay, breaking over sand. Meelup is only surfed by long-boarders, and will go years without getting bigger than waist high.

 

To get to Meelup, head down aptly named Meelup Road, and pull into the car park at the beach. If there’s no waves (and there probably won’t be), you can keep following the road north, searching for a waves around the Eagle Bay area.

 

Meelup is only 10 minutes from the township of Dunsborough. This once quiet little coastal town is now expanding and becoming more up-market at an exponential rate. Despite the changes Dunsborough is still a lovely town, with a good pub, and the world class Tas’s Bakery for all you meat pie connoisseurs.  

 

Surfing Meelup is more a novelty than anything. The wave quality is average, although the beautiful scenery does make up for it.
