Binningup Beach offers some great little waves for the novice surfer. When the swell is Northwest or Westly, surfers should head to the colloquial known Weedies. From the boat ramp, looking north-west, if breaking, the reef-break wave will be approximately 150 metres from the coast.
Access is also available at the end of West Coast Drive. There are a number of lookout points along Binningup Beach, including Valentine’s and West Coast Drive.
Binningup Pirate Ship Playground overlooks the Indian Ocean at Binningup Beach and is a delight in demand from dawn to dusk. The Playground has soft fall protection, sheltered seating, tables and a gas barbeque. It caters for toddlers to teenagers and has many challenges such as a treasure hunt.

Sit on the deck and watch the sun go down over the Indian Ocean with a nice frosty beer or a glass of local wine. Binningup has more than 70 holiday homes to rent, some with ocean views from every room. Others are nestled between peppermint trees.

A reef runs parallel to the Binningup Beach foreshore offering great fishing in particular from December to April.

Locals love a little place to the north called Paradise Beach. Or launch the boat and head further afield.

Run by a Committee of dedicated volunteers, this not for profit facility can accommodate 80 people.
Unwind with a few beevies after a game of lawn bowls with the friendly locals at the Binningup Country Club. During summer, team barefoot bowls is very popular. The Country Club Kitchen is open every Friday night from 5pm, with meals from 6pm – 8pm. We love the Surf and Turf; a scrumptious Porterhouse steak with prawns. The venue is also perfect for a group function.
Alternatively, sporty-types can play a game of tennis at Binningup’s beachside court and take a swim between sets.
