#3 of 17 in Things to do in Coral Bay
Coral Bay Beach is a settlement that lies on the coast near Australia's only fringing reef. The mild weather in the area ensures good conditions for fishing and reef exploration while camping and caravan sites along the water are full of visitors. The reef is as busy as the coastline with migrating whale sharks that scour the water for krill and nesting turtles that laying their eggs. Don't worry, the whale sharks are giants, but they filter the water for plankton, not swimmers. To visit Coral Bay Beach on your trip to Coral Bay, use our Coral Bay trip planning site .
