It's amazing how all of the small bays and beaches on Rottnest are so untouched and remain naturally clean and beautiful. This small baby is so lovely just like all the others, it's turquoise water and white Sandy beaches make it perfect.

Parakeet Bay is definitely worth the trip out to see - the water is beautiful and the sand dunes are fun to explore or relax on.

Just a 15 minute bike ride (via Geordie Bay) from the visitors centre is Parakeet Bay. A great swimming / snorkeling spot and a great place for a picnic. Beautiful blue clear water. Stunning spot.

This was hands down our favourite spot on Rotto. Beautiful crystal clear water and fine white sandy beach and reasonably sheltered despite a windy August day on our visit.

A great day had on Rottnest Island. We hired some bikes and stopped for a swim here. Don't forget sunscreen as it gets very hot.
