If you time your visit with sunset, you'll be in for an incredible experience. A 400 metre boardwalk, perched high above the shallow coastal waters, offers stunning views and provides the opportunity to spot wildlife like ospreys, dugongs, dolphins, sharks and rays. The Useless Loop salt pile can be seen across the other side of the sound.
There is not an official campsite at Eagle Bluff, however if you pre-register (call or email) with the Shark Bay World Heritage Discovery + Visitor Centre you may be able to camp at one of the informal sites at nearby Whalebone Bay.
Fun fact: in 1858, Captain H.M Denham carved an inscription on a rock at Eagle Bluff. This rock is now placed in Pioneer Park in the township of Denham.
