The white sandy beaches of Sandy Cape Recreational Park offer a magnificent beachfront campsite with many activities to enjoy such as swimming, snorkelling, beach fishing or bush walking along the tracks provided through the native vegetation.
Sandy Cape Recreation Park is a separate park to Beekeepers Reserve, and is vested in the Shire of Dandaragan for recreational use. You actually drive through a portion of Beekeepers Reserve to reach the Sandy Cape Recreation Park. Access is via a graded gravel road that can be a little rough occasionally. This access road is approximately 8km North of Jurien townsite and is signposted.

The access road to Sandy Cape Park is also an access road to a working Gypsum Mine, which is located on the Eastern edge of the Park. Accordingly, signs warn that oversize earthmoving equipment also traverses this access road, so exercise caution.

The Park is set up very well, with 38 sites, all well marked, and two toilet facilities provided. The sites are well protected from wind by being located behind a large, continuous sand dune that runs along the beach front. There is a moderate amount of shade available, and early comers get the trees, naturally.

On the way in to the Park, about a kilometre before you reach the Park, there is an information area with comprehensive signage and advice. Alongside the information area is an excellent toilet dump site, complete with several 10L bottles of water sitting on posts, to enable you to flush and wash your toilet cassette.

This campsite is without doubt, a most attractive and well-maintained Shire campsite. Fees are payable at this site, and they are collected by the Shire Ranger each morning.

This is a gorgeous little place right on the coast. It is our first stop after leaving the southwest where we live on our way to the northwest coast for the winter
