This picturesque seaside town may have started off as a humble fishing village, but today it is known as the ‘Diamond of the West Coast’, thanks to its pure, uninterrupted white beaches, blue sea and skies, its abundant marine life and its superb seafood.
This little seaside mecca in the heart of crayfish country is named after Admiral Lambert of the British Navy, who did a marine survey of the bay between 1826 and 1840, and was used as a lay-up for British warships during the war of 1900-1902.
A range of natural attractions and adventure activities is on offer. Pelagic birds, dolphins and whales abound –, in particular, the Heaviside’s dolphin, which is endemic to this section of coast. At Bird Island you can view gannets, cormorants and seals up close.
