Beautiful views, the colour of the ocean is spectacularly turquoise ! The snorkelling was incredible. For those who are not confident in the water the swim towards low tide was great with plenty of fish to see and the reef was not too far out. The drift was strong and be aware that you need to start far south and... More

We arrived early in the morning and the beach was deserted. Snorkelling is safe and great for beginners. Having said that there is still plenty to see, we saw tons of different types of fish, turtles and dolphins swam really close to the reef. A great beach.

Excellent marine life here, small sharks, octopus, blue-spotted rays, flatworms, nudibranchs and many fish and corals can all be seen with some careful observation. Lovely sandy beach and easy snorkelling in the bay. Make sure you get the instructions from Milyering visitor centre and watch for currents.

Whilst there are many warnings, if you to the southern beach, head south down that beach and swim out, you can just drift with the current over the coral. Well worth a visit

We visited Turquoise Bay three times while visiting Cape Range National Park. The beach and bay are breathtaking, and when we visited only a few other tourists were there. The area is well maintained with little evidence of overuse. There's good snorkelling if you swim out a bit, though better snorkelling opportunities at Oyster Stacks down the road.

We actually wouldn't bother with any snorkeling activities in or around Exmouth - just head to Coral Bay.

I had the pleasure of living in Exmouth for about 15 months and Turquoise Bay was my favorite place to go! Turquoise Bay is part of the Ningaloo Reef, which is the largest fringe reef in the world! People always go to the Great Barrier Reef, which is beautiful in it's own right. You do have to take a long... More

Turquoise bay has to be one of the nicest beaches I have seen across WA. This was meant to be the first stop of many different beaches in the National Park but we ended up staying all day as it was so lovely. The water is so beautiful and amazing for snorkeling. Definitely worth a visit.

We did some snorkelling at Turquoise Bay and loved it. There was a shark alert when were there but that was all part of exploring the reef
