With 1250km of Coastline making up Australia's Coral Coast, there is just so many great beaches to explore. Here's a list of a few favourites we like to swim or snorkel at when travelling along the Coast line.
Urchin Point on Dirk Hartog Island, Shark Bay
- amazing place to see Dolphins surfing the waves as you enjoy a bit of shore fishing and best of all, you can camp on the beach! Make your camp booking with Dirk Hartog Island.
Sandy Bay, Exmouth
- drive a bit further past Turquoise Bay in the Cape Range National Park to will find you own perfect patch of seaside, Sandy Bay is also brilliant spot for kayaking. Please note this beach is not patrolled.
Turtle Bay, Abrolhos Islands
- found on East Wallabi (one of the 120 Abrolhos Islands
off Geraldton's coastline), it’s such a secret you can only reach the beach by air or sea! Beautiful remote beach with stunning coral reef in very easy reach. Book with Shine Aviation
Five Fingers Reef, Coral Bay
- super low lying coral formations that you can drift snorkel in picturesque Coral Bay, just be care of your finns - the coral is very shallow!
Little Bay, Horrocks
- Horrocks is found 1 hour north of Geraldton, due west from the town of Northampton. Crystal clear for swimming, a great place to kite-board too and it's jetty is perfect to drop a line for fishing.
The Thong Shack, Denham in Shark Bay
- found 3 kms south of Denham township when walking along the beach, and of course add a thong/flip flop to the collection.
Muiron Islands, Exmouth
- visit the islands for the day with Exmouth Diving Centre or Dive Ningaloo, where you can snorkel or dive these pristine Ningaloo waters.
- the protected waters and rock pools make the Kalbarri BlueHoles a natural aquarium for marine life. Super safe for kids to splash about in too!
South Beach, Port Denison
- a great surfing beach if you're learning to surf. It's also perfect for swimming and sand is so compact you can drive straight onto the beach and park up!
Sandy Cape, Jurien Bay
- well known by the 4WD community, Sandy Cape at Jurien Bay has dunes perfect for sandboarding or simply soft enough to watch the sun set, the water's not bad either!
Shell Beach at Quobba Station, Carnarvon
- completely different to the cockle Shell Beach of Shark Bay, Carnarvon's Quobba Station has its own shell beach which is great for beachcombing finding mostly Cowry shells.
Mackerel Islands, accessed out of Exmouth
- seeking a slice of island life? When in Exmouth, why not add a trip to Thevenard Island to experience life on and around the Mackerel Islands.
