    Turquoise beach visit
    It was a wonderful spot. The water was lovely and beach was absolutely stunning. So many different types of sand on the beach and the water was warm and clear. Also the place was family friendly and simply fantastic.

    Simply stunning
    Bequtiful beach, full of people enjoying the third most beautiful beach in the world, yet definitely not crowded. Families, couples, oldies, youngies. Take note and snorkel near others as there can be quite a pull on some days

    Little bit of snorkelling heaven
    Stunning place to visit. We went to the Drift Bay Area found a small place on the beach as there isn’t a lot of sand area but the water was amazing. Snorkelling was amazing, won’t disappoint experts or novices. You do drift hence the name, but take you to the other end of the beach and you get out and go again. We saw something differ y every time so it doesn’t get boring. Heaps of fish to see and also rare turtle sightings as well. Family friendly especially around the other side of the bay. No food or drink facilities available so take everything you need for the day. There are 2 drop toilets that are accessible as well.

    Amazing water colour and reef snorkeling
    Well worth the drive. There's a current that takes you to the open ocean if you don't get off at the point that the signs warn you about. I was there at low tide so there wasn't any current at all. The fish life was simply phenomenal. One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen & it's free.

    Idyllic Beach
    Without a doubt, the nicest beach we visited in our month long trip in Australia. It mattered not a jot either that we were there in winter with lovely sunshine and warm temperatures. The water was a little cold but as Europeans, we are used to that! It was lovely to swim in, teeming with life too as the reef is only just off shore. What we most loved was the peace and quiet. There are no crowds and it is totally undeveloped as it lies well within Cape Range National park. There is a car park and viewing platform fort hose who don't want to go down to the beach itself. otherwise nothing, no bars, shops etc... perfect.

    With the worlds largest fringing reef 300 klms, there is no better place to Snorkel. The marina life in Ningaloo is out of this world! You don’t have to go far from the white sand to be surrounded by large fish, the water was literally knee deep. I cannot tell you how beautiful the clear clean turquoise waters are for this bay. It’s phenomenal and 10/10! See Exmouth, Turquoise Bay, Sandy Bay and Coral Bay before you die! And Monkey Mia too :)

So it’s a bit of a drive from Exmouth.. maybe 35-40 mins..but the beach is well worth going to..
Parking is close to the beach, and the blue of the sea is really blue..
To the left of the beach is the drift snorkel, which I did a couple times. There is a good lot of coral here , and lots of fish life.
The main part of the beach is Sandy, and slopes gently.
I also snorkelled the main beach and saw a couple turtles and some blue spotted rays.
On a bad day, the flies can be horrendous..

What a fabulously easy place to snorkel. Beware the currents but going at the right tide makes this the easiest place to see such an amazing array of marine life. A must for your holiday itinerary

Beautiful beach or cove, depending on which side you go to. Drift dive pretty good but not my favourite as it’s over too quick if the drift is fast.

What a wonderful world just a short walk from the beach and an easy snorkle out to the reef so full of a massive variety of fish. Have a buddy with you as the tidal flow can lead you down the beach. A very special place.
