Reef and marine life just a short walk away. Beach is beautiful! We highly recommend early morning snorkeling at this location. The more time you spend, the more you see.

Perfect for families with young kids. Awesome snorkelling and the most amazing beach. Take some shade with you if you are there for more than an hour.

Gosh our family loves heading out to Turquoise Bay - such a beautiful white sandy beach and amazing blue water. The snorkelling spots here are close to the shore and are easy for the kids to navigate around. Relaxing day trip out from Exmouth.

Very clear water, lots of interesting fish, we were going to go to Oyster Stacks but the tide was too low. It was a windy day and this bay was a little more protected

This is not to be missed. The beach is lovely to walk on and the snorkeling is wonderful. Great fish and beautiful coral.

Surprisingly the beach is as good as it looks in photos, with stunning colours and easy access to the reef.

Just off the beach is lots of coral and fish. My favourite snorkelling spot. This is a drift snorkelling spot but current not that strong so you drift down and swim back up.

What a magnificent beach and the coral is just there!! No need to travel by boat to get to the coral. Make sure you take water and all you feed as there is no facilities for buying food.

G'day I believe this is a great time to visit. The sharks will be around. The nights might be chilly but it will still be warm during the day. Water will be 26+.

Hy, sorry for the delay: no public transport, but there's shuttle bus from some tour operator. You can ask at the Exmouth Visitor Center. Bye
