Blue Holes is a fish habitat protection area and part of an inshore limestone reef system, with some sections permanently submerged and others exposed, giving the ‘Blue Holes’ stretch of coast its name. It's home to more than 70 species of finfish. Some fish to look out for include dart, moon wrasse, raccoon butterfly fish, humbugs and western rock lobster. There are as many as 10 types of sponge, 11 species of coral, crustaceans such as banded hair shrimp and beds of oysters.
Walk along the pristine sandy beach and examine rock pools along the shore. Swim in the sheltered waters and laze about on the soft sand. Then settle back after a rewarding investigation of the Blue Holes to see the beautiful Western Australian sunset.
