The world class reef breaks at Margaret River offer almost perfect lefts and rights that come from long-range ocean swells that pure into the mouth of the river. The waves pop up and form over the shallow and hard reef bottom creating a wave that offers a fantastic ride.
The locals and experienced surfers know to set themselves up right under the closing lip drop to the bottom and feel the power push them into the line of the wave.This is a very powerful wave that holds massive swells and one should not paddle out unless they have some experience in this type of surf. Even if you are somewhat inexperienced it is worth the visit, just to sit on the cliffs and watch the action. The inexperienced are not left out as you will find safer beach breaks near-by.
Denham and the nearby resort of Monkey Mia are typical of norther beaches where the long lines of white soft sand and shallow beaches are fantastic for family holidays.
