Located within Cape Le Grand National Park, Le Grand Beach is ideal for enjoying water-based activities including diving, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and snorkelling.
You can also fish and launch small boats in the area, although campers are advised that it is very easy for vehicles to get bogged in the wet and dry sand of the beach.
Le Grand Beach and the adjoining coastline take their name from an officer on the L'Esperance, one of two vessels in a French expedition exploring the south coast in 1792. Le Grand is said to have climbed the masthead during a severe storm and guided the ships to a safe anchorage near Observatory Island west of Esperance. Many other natural features along this stretch of coastline, including Esperance and the Recherche, were also named by the French during this expedition.
Camping facilities are available at Le Grand Beach Campground.
