GOT ONE OF THESE?

If so, the waters off Lancelin are perfect for getting out and about like this adventurous jet skier.   He parked his car on the Back Beach and launched his ski right there. That’s one of the main drawcards of Lancelin, being able to launch directly from the beach either near the jetty, along Cunliffe Street, at the north point or from the Back Beach.   Get a group together… Read More

THE IDEAL SPOT TO STARGAZE

Lancelin has very light pollution especially if you head north or south of the township, or wander out to one of the dunes. With so little ambient light, the stars simply “POP”! If you’re planning a trip to town (and if you’re not I highly recommend it), bring a blanket or a sleeping bag and a pillow, and fix your gaze on the stars on a clear night. You’ll be… Read More

TIME TO GIVE THE BOAT A RUN

Lancelin’s calm bay is a popular drawcard for Perth boaties. We’re less than an hour by car from Joondalup and less than 90 minutes from the centre of Perth. Get your friends and family primed for a day trip or weekend to Lano. If you have a 4WD you can launch from the beach and spend a few hours fishing in the bay, head out to deep water for your… Read More

LIKE LONG WALKS ON THE BEACH?

Well, head to Lancelin where you can walk the bay from north to south (and back) in under an hour. The 5.4km roundtrip is great exercise and the feeling of sand between your toes will definitely relax you; when done with a friend it will also yield plenty of good conversation.   If you’re coming for a few days you’ll find a range of accommodation including the Lancelin Beach Hotel,… Read More

LANCELIN IS A WINDSURFING HEAVEN

Lancelin has an enviable reputation for it’s magnificent windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions. Yesterday this fella was having a great time on a windsurfing foil just north of the jetty. He used Harold Park to rig and de-rig and was wending his way through and around the cray boats at the northern end of the bay. If you love this sort of thing, we invite you to head to Lancelin soon… Read More
