Swansea Beach Chalets has direct beach access to beautiful Jubilee Beach, which is lovely and sheltered for walking, swimming, and snorkelling.

When the tide allows, you can walk the length of the foreshore past Swansea Jetty (a popular spot for squid fishing) and around Waterloo Point onto Schouten Beach. There are public toilets, a barbecue area and a playground along the way if you’re travelling with kids.

Part of this walk, from Waterloo Beach to Schouten Beach, overlaps with the loontitetermairrelehoiner circuit walk, named after the local band of Aboriginal people. The track passes through a shearwater breeding area, and the birds can be seen at dusk in the summer months, returning to their burrows.
