Welcome to Lancelin
Afternoon offshore winds and a protective outlying reef make raffish little Lancelin a heaven-sent destination for windsurfing and kitesurfing, attracting wind-worshippers from around the planet. In January the Lancelin Ocean Classic windsurfing race kicks off at Ledge Point not far to the south. Back on dry land, the mountainous white dunes on the edge of town are prized sandboarding terrain.
Lancelin itself isn't much to look at – a flat, ramshackle fishing town – but there are a couple of decent places to stay, eat and drink here if you're in need of an overnighter. Online, see www.lancelin.com.au.
