Absolutely beautiful beach, we spent all our time here. The beach is spacious, nice clean sand, shallow waters so great for kids, clear water for snorkelling & gorgeous views.

Rottnest island was one of my favourite destinations during my visit to Perth. I highly recommend you hire a bike and go around the island, it would probably take you a good 4 hours at least to ride from the port to the other side...More

Gorgous beach and easy place to snorkel for a beginner like myself. Lots of shelter from the wind, especially in the morning before the Freo doctor comes in.

We did not have a bike so this was the nearest beach. If you love whale watching then check out the humans on the beach here - beached and blanched. Water colder than expected but pretty none the less plus no boats

We hired bikes and rode here first stop. We were the only ones there and went snorkelling which was magnificent. Clear water, plenty of fish, white sand, protected bay and secluded in December! It’s about 20-30 minute bike ride from bike hire shop. Highly recommended...More

I was at Little Salmon, which was a little crowded but had nice sand and a good outlook. Water was cool on entry in early December but got quite pleasant for swimming or snorkelling once in. There are a lot of rocks in the bay...More

This is an awesome beach, you can snorkel, relax, sun bake, chill out, kick the footy and it is generally pretty quiet.... About a 20 min moderate bike ride or you can catch the bus, but the ride is worth while... We go a lot...More

Such a beautiful beach with clear blue water and white sandy beach! It's a bit further away from the ferry, but we rented bikes and went to the beach- loved it !

Beautiful beach, white sand, clear water and very quiet when we visited. Great to lay down a towel and have a bite to eat when cycling around rotto!
