    Highly recommended
    Very nice beach with clear water and soft sand. Stingrays coming by and swim close to shore. Pretty windy but just nice under the hot sun. Children loved it! Nothing much around the region but definitely worth rd the drive. Highly recommended.

    A great place for sand, surf and stingrays.
    Beautiful beach with stingrays! Not only is it a great place to swim and hang out, but you get to feed the stingrays and see them up close. They are friendly and an absolute joy to behold. Tip: Bring some raw fish before coming so you can feed the lovely creatures.

    Glorious and great for ray spotting
    Had a lovely wander along the bay and just as we thought we’d missed seeing any rays, a huge one came along and swam the entire length of the beach right near the shore. We walked alongside it a few hundred metres before a crowd gathered to do the same (although a crowd in WA is never huge!). We then saw a much smaller one going the other direction. We would’ve gotten in the water had the rays not been out - looked a lovely spot for a swim. Well worth a visit!

    Wonderful experience!
    Came at 4pm in a cloudy and relatively warm day (28 deg). 3 big rays and a small one were swimming around with the people and they seem to enjoy coming close and occasionally “bumping” into us. It was an enjoyable afternoon and a very interesting experience that is fun for the kids! 👍🏻

Absolutely stunning bay with the added bonus of regular visits of large stingrays who cruise up and down the beach. Toilets and showers available as you leave the beach

Nice but smells of mangroves and lots of seaweed doesn't really look like it does in all these social media photos

Set the GPS and ended up in a precinct of holiday homes. Forget the GPS and follow Caves Rd to the very end - it's southern most end. There is a short walk to the beach. A nice beach/bay that's very photogenic and the sand is so clean. To swim, not so much but if you are there to enjoy sun, sand and people watching - ticks all of those boxes.

Nice bay, aldough not as beautiful as some other bays. Walking up the hill seeing the next bay was nice, we stayed during weekend so quite busy. Seeing some rays was a wonderful experience.

Water was pretty turbid and there were lots of people trying to check out the rays.

It’s a nice enough spot but if the conditions aren’t at their best then it’s kind of like an crowded boat ramp at an average beach.

Beautiful spot to stop and do a hike around the foreshore and Bay Area.
Large stingrays are in the shallow water and will come up to you and swim around the shallows, be calm and patient, we saw 6-8 on the day we were there.
Continue up over the walkway and beyond for more views around the bay to the other side.
Lovely spot for swim or picnic.
Toilets and parking.
No shade, would be hot on a very hot day.
