  • It's easy to get to The Basin, on foot or on bicycle. You can spend the whole day here in summer. The water is clean and beautifully clear, and you are protected by the outer reef. 
  • This is a very picturesque beach and has good facilities (toilets, drinking water, sheltered bench area) so makes a perfect spot for a picnic. Our children enjoyed exploring around the rocks. 
  • Such a beautiful place.. Water is amazing.. So beautiful and safe for swimming. Wish I could have stayed longer.. 
  • The basin is the popular swimming location at Rottnest island has a road and cycleway to the location with fresh water showers where you can swim snorkel and sunbake
  • A great place for Children & Adults to snorkel, swim & have some fun in the water or just take the sun in on the beach, grass area or under the shelter. There are toilet facilities & outdoor showers at "The Basin". It's only a short ride or walk from the Town centre.
  • Love it here!
