Beautiful Bremer Bay

There are many beautiful places within Australia. Some are well known and others are far away and isolated. Fortunately enough I know of one magical place that is more unknown than known. Bremer Bay. Located in the south west of Australia, it is approximately a seven hour drive from Perth, however the long car drive is definitely worth it. I have visited Bremer three times now and each time it gets better than the last. My aunty has a beautiful house there so I am fortunate enough to be able to stay in one of the most simple but stunning houses with a breathtaking view. It has a large boulder out the front of the house, perfect for laying out in the sun like a lizard on a rock.

The main attraction of Bremer Bay are its beautiful beaches. Some are easy to get to, others are not. There is a beach called Native Dog beach with its good surf and beautiful rock pools. There is one  hidden rock pool known as "Sally's pool" at the far end of the beach. Honestly, the little mermaid aint got nothing on this place. You have your own little mermaid haven that made all of my mermaid dreams seem true.

The next beach was by far my favourite, yet the most difficult to find. As my aunty lives in Bremer, she was able to give us the directions and location of this hidden gem. It was not easy to get to, having to go for a small bush walk and then go down a sand cliff, but it was definitely 1000% worth it. I will keep the name of this beach unknown so that it will forever have that sense of a secret hidden beach. As no one knows about this beach, it was completely deserted and therefore all to ourselves. We were like children in a candy store when we arrived, not even being able to contain our excitment. You will see why. 

The next location is not so much a beach but more of place to just sit and observe the beauty of mother nature. It is called Sparkling Island, a rock formation amist the crashing waves of the southern ocean. At certain times of the year you are able to see the whales migrating through these waters. We saw a small seal dancing within the water among the waves. It was also a wonderful place for a picnic.

One of the most stunning parts about Bremer Bay are their sunsets. Lighting up the sky with various shades of colour and creating the most relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. You can't help but end up with hundreds of photos of the same sunset, because you don't want to forget a moment of it. These are just a few of the many beautiful sunsets that Bremer experiences. You are almost always guaranteed to get an amazing sunset each afternoon. 

Here are a few more photos of various other beaches and locations around Bremer Bay... 

Bremer Bay is most definitely the most beautiful place I have visited in Australia and I am convinced it is one of the most amazing places in the world.
