I am looking for a honeymoon destination (resort or hotel). The constraints:

  • beach - white sandy if possible
  • Western Australia - stunning views
  • optional constraint: close to Perth (we intend to fly to Perth)

Any other suggestion is welcomed!

I think it's still too broad, I expect hundreds of possibilities. No constraint on the price btw? –  Vince Jun 11 '13 at 9:42
    
I don't know what to expect, as I never traveled to Australia...so this is why I leave it open ended. –  user503413 Jun 11 '13 at 10:53

Are you aware of just how big Western Australia is? And how relative "close to" can be for people from / not from there? As in you'll meet some people from out there who'll say "we're quite near Perth, it's only a 12 hour drive"... –  Gagravarr Jun 11 '13 at 11:31
    
well, now I know all the things you mentioned :). –  user503413 Jun 11 '13 at 12:34

Western Australia is big but very sparsely populated. I don't know of any such resort off the top of my head but might expect something in or around Broome. Rottnest Island maybe?? I wouldn't be surprised if there are very few contenders with places of this nature more likely in the tropical islands of North Queensland. I think it's a suitable question. –  hippietrail Jun 12 '13 at 5:51

Cable Beach Resort in Broome should tick most of your boxes. However, being a 2.5 hour flight away from Perth, it's only "close" by WA standards. Busselton and other places around the Margaret River south of Perth are another option, but you're looking at a 2+ hour drive to get to them.

If you're looking something under an hour from Perth, there's a fair number of pretty decent beaches nearby as well, most famously Cottesloe. But these are all (more or less) "city" beaches, which may or may not be what you're looking for.
