Living in a country girt by sea, we can’t help but love the waves. Up in Atlantis Beach, if you’re lucky enough to have your own boat, you’re only minutes from Two Rocks Marina where you can launch straight into the Indian Ocean for the day. There’s so much ocean to explore up here – but always make sure to log on with the Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue with your FG number or boat registration and your expected return time.
If you’ve not quite got your sea legs yet, but are keen to get in the water, why not give Sun City Yacht Club a visit? They’ve provided generations of Two Rocks locals with water boating skills, as well as being a great social group. They even hold an annual triathlon! Check out http://www.suncityyachtclub.com.au/ for more information.
Whether you’re on a boat or offshore, who doesn’t love a spot of fishing? WA’s north coast offers a great variety of fishing locations, and as Two Rocks has a history as a crayfishing village, you won’t be disappointed. With Two Rocks Marina so close by, you can stock up on bait and take a much needed fishing break from the popular Leemans Landing for a great day out.
Second only to boating, what’s more Australian than packing up the car or quad for a weekend of dunes and good times? Living in Atlantis Beach, you’re only moments from some of the best FWD and bike tracks around Perth, including Wilbinga sand tracks, just 20 minutes North. There’s also a great culture of FWD clubs in the area, so keep an ear out to find those with a like mind (and a like car!) Keep in mind, it’s best to steer clear of private land – Atlantis Beach is a new estate, so the surrounding area has a lot of loose sand and debris. Nothing worse than getting bogged!

There is SO much to explore up in Atlantis Beach. Surrounded by beaches on one side, and bushlands to the other, there is so much to see and do. You can spend the day at Yanchep National Park, only 10 minutes South, and soak in the natural history, or discover one of the many walking tracks, keeping a look out for all the native flora and fauna. Or maybe you’re feeling particularly adventurous, and want to check out the old Atlantis Marine Park. Under the protective gaze of giant King Neptune, you can count all the eerily lifelike limestone creations by American sculptor, Mark LeBuse.
