If you are in the Albany area and south-west coast of WA one of the places you have to stop by at Bettys Beach free camping. It’s hard to believe such an amazing location on the coast is free and judging by its 4.9 Google rating it must be a knockout and just 50 km’s east of Albany.

This location is located near Two Peoples Bay and is fairly small and remote coastal hideaway which was discovered many moons ago by fisherman. The location itself has been a mainstay location for salmon fisherman, who gather here annually and fish in this section of the coast. So as a camper its best to avoid this season as its usually closed off to camping (usually February to April). Although if you are an avid fisherman it could make for a spectacular experience. Just stay somewhere else
Make sure to hit the crest of the main hill which overlooks Betty’s Beach. The view from this location is heavenly should make part of your plans if you are stopping at this fabulous free campsite. There are huge boulders which dispersed amongst the white sandy beaches, something you would see on a postcard.
If you are camping in a tent you can get pretty close to the beach where there are even a couple of flat spaced where you are basically waterfront. Can’t get better than that. It can also be rather windy so be sure to select a spot sheltered best from the wind.
This location is obviously a great spot for swimming in the amazingly clear water. Rummaging around the rocks and when it’s not the salmon season you can also fish for other fish such as snapper, whiting, flathead and flounder. It is also very common to spot Whales anywhere between Jully and October.
The camping area is very small so places can get snapped up pretty fast and its not recommended for big rigs as its a very small spot, more suited for tents to camper trailers or even smaller caravans. The amenities are rather limited but the location is worth it, with drop toilets being the only real thing on offer as facilities.
A place to bring the family or just a place to chill out and relax, Bettys Beach Free Camping is a delight and a must-stop location for the free camper on a road trip through WA.
