Coral Bay is a quaint spot just south of Exmouth who’s colourful coral reefs and white sandy beaches have put it firmly on the tourist map. The bay forms part of the Maud Sanctuary Zone in the greater Ningaloo Marine Park, making it an ideal location for marine enthusiasts.
Ningaloo Marine park is a colourful underwater wonderland; the Great Barrier Reef on the east coast of Australia gets more attention but Ningaloo is just as good, if not better. You can snorkel straight off the beach here and let the current drift you until the end, hop out, walk back up the beach and start again!
Eighty Mile Beach is the longest stretch of beach on the WA coastline at a grand 220km! The beach forms part of the marine park which provides internationally significant feeding grounds for small migratory wading birds. The expansive tidal flats, seagrass meadows, coral reefs and mangroves provides ideal habitat for invertebrates to flourish and feed these migratory birds, as well as a great diversity of permanent residents including the endemic flatback turtle that also nests here.
