Although it takes a longish walk to get there, snorkelling at low time is rewarding for all who make the effort.

We visited Monkey Beach with two young kids whilst doing the 'Monkey Point (inc Long Beach) Walk. It was an absolutely stunning stretch of sand. Think deserted beach with white sand, aqua water and great snorkelling........minus the price tag usually associated with this beauty.

A very nice area to snorkel from the beach at Great Keppel Island. The walk down to the beach was a bit challenging but certainly worth it. Saw many types of colourful fish. Time your snorkel for mid-tide or slightly lower.

A nice sized beach. Not alot of shade if you wanted to stay the day. Good for exploring around the rocks at either end.
