Turquoise Bay, Exmouth

4.9
#1 of 17 in Parks in Exmouth
Turquoise Bay offers visitors a chance to drift along the Ningaloo Reef and see hard corals and an abundance of marine life, such as turtles and octopods. The beach, rarely crowded by tourists, features a wide strip of warm white sand where you can spend the day relaxing in the sun or picnicking. You can also dive or snorkel here and come face-to-face with the many sea creatures making their home in these blue waters. There's very little shade on this beach, so bring your own umbrella or small tent. When diving or swimming along this coastline, be careful not to get caught by the strong riptide, and keep children and novice swimmers in the shallow areas near the sand.

    We did enjoy Turquoise Bay and we were delighted to be offered pensioner prices to enter the national Park.  more »

    Snorkling on the reef here is simply magical. The coral is lovely and so many brilliant fish to see. Not at all crowded and the bay truly is turquoise.  more »
