Canal Rocks

Star 4.8 (2140 Google reviews)

Witness spectacular seascape views across the Indian Ocean and up and down the remote coastline at Canal Rocks. Thousands of years of the Indian Ocean surging and crashing against this section of granite coastline has chiselled out a narrow channel between the granite rocks. A narrow timber walkway allows for easy access and great views of the rushing ocean beneath. It is always impressive no matter what the weather, but extra breathtaking when the big storms and swells roll in. 
The timber pathway meanders around and across the rocks, taking in grand seascapes with swirling water to little pools and lagoons where you can look for marine creatures like cheeky crabs to brightly coloured starfish. For something more challenging there are areas to climb over rocks, or take an energetic stroll to the lookout about 500m from the road. For the more adventurous, snorkelling and fishing are popular activities in the sheltered areas but be sure to heed the directional and warning signs. A finger jetty and boat ramp add to the facilities offered. Canal Rocks is on the Cape to Cape Track and is a popular stop for walkers with the freshwater spring located 100m below the track, north of the carpark. Canal Rocks also offers a two-kilometre scenic walk to Wyadup Cliffs.

Very nice rocky beach. This was a world best experience I had since long... Best scenes, in the time of evening when the place is calm, without many people swimming in the small pockets of beach, really we can see huge stingrays floating on water. Anyone wants to experience rock climbing and hiking on horizontal level and have fun... People jumping from the bridge is very risky, one of my skinny friend jumped and got scratched, so If heavy people would jump would definitely cause a big injury. The rocks are recommended to hike only with a full sleeves and a good pair of shoes to be safe from slips and scratches....

Beautiful spot to view. Easy walking tracks out onto the rocks. Certainly worth a visit.

The weather was really lovely when we went, the rocks were fun to climb on but you had to be careful not to slip. The rocks were dry when we went to it was easier to climb. I would be careful if I had young children or the elderly cause the bridge kinda just leads off into the rocks. The rock pools were very cute and the water was very clear you could see fish swimming in the pools! The waves do crash on the rocks so you do have to be careful in the water.

Beautiful spot to visit. Water was cold. Great to explore among the rocks.
