A Tranquil Swim in Azure Waters at Greens Pool


Renowned for its pristine beaches and abundant natural beauty, Denmark, Western Australia, boasts a variety of unique attractions. Among these, Greens Pool, situated in William Bay National Park, stands out as an idyllic paradise. Tucked away on the state’s stunning South Coast, Greens Pool offers an experience that is both tranquil and invigorating. We were there for a visit early in 2023 and enjoyed the most serene couple of hours at the pool. We got our timing just right as it can get a bit busy we were told with the destination popular with both visitors and locals alike. Truly a stunning location. ED: Kevin Parker

Characteristic Beauty of Greens Pool

Set amidst an amphitheater of towering granite rocks, Greens Pool, William Bay National Park, is a destination of serene beauty. These natural formations serve as windbreakers, creating a calm and safe swimming environment, a rarity along this often tempestuous coastline. The pool is known for its crystal clear turquoise waters, providing a striking contrast against the rugged grey of the rocks.

The granites’ weather-worn textures and the shimmering pool create a landscape that’s both otherworldly and harmoniously organic. With the sun’s rays reflecting off the water’s surface, it’s easy to be captivated by the pool’s surreal beauty. This unique environment makes Greens Pool an ideal spot for photography enthusiasts, landscape lovers, and anyone seeking a peaceful retreat.

Marine Life and Snorkeling Adventures at Greens Pool

While the tranquility of Greens Pool makes it a perfect spot for families, it’s the underwater wonderland that draws snorkeling enthusiasts. The calm waters harbor a myriad of marine life, including a variety of colorful fish, crabs, and sea stars. The seafloor is a mosaic of underwater flora, adding another layer of beauty for snorkelers to explore.

Nearby Activities and Tourist Attractions

Beyond the natural allure of Greens Pool itself, the wider area of the William Bay National Park offers many additional activities. For those who enjoy hiking, the park is crisscrossed by trails that meander through native bushland, leading to other hidden gems such as Elephant Rocks and Madfish Bay.

Elephant Rocks, named for their resemblance to a herd of elephants bathing in the sea, is just a short walk from Greens Pool. This spot provides yet another breathtaking location for swimming and sunbathing.

Madfish Bay, with its unique wave patterns causing fish to leap from the water, is another sight not to be missed. Besides, the Bay is known for its birdlife, making it a paradise for birdwatchers.

Culinary Options

No trip to Denmark would be complete without sampling the region’s culinary offerings. The town of Denmark, a short drive from Greens Pool, hosts an array of cafes and restaurants that showcase local produce. Mrs Jones Café, in the Old Butter Factory, is a firm favorite among locals and tourists alike, offering a menu that includes fresh seafood and locally sourced organic produce.

For wine enthusiasts, Denmark is also known for its exceptional cool-climate wines. The Denmark Wine Region is home to several award-winning vineyards, such as Singlefile Wines and Howard Park Wines, where visitors can indulge in wine tasting and vineyard tours.
