Prevelly is a 10 minute drive west of Margaret River and is the home to the world famous Margaret River surfing beaches, in Western Australia’s south west. It is a beachside playground with a close knit community, four hours from Perth city.

Prevelly, was named after the Preveli monastery in Crete by Geoffrey Edwards, an Australian soldier who was given shelter by the monks during World War II.

The pounding waves host the Margaret River Masters each March, showcasing the best surfers in the world. In contrast to the surfing activity there are many peaceful beaches used for a quiet paddle or gentle floating.

Beachside apartments and houses, villas, camping, and caravanning facilities are available. Enjoy ocean views from the restaurant and cafes. Prevelly acts as a relaxing base for tourists, just a short drive from Margaret River’s shopping, wineries, cheese and chocolate factories.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
