Absolutely beautiful but be careful when snorkelling, there is strong currents and is understandably busy at holidays .

An absolute fanastic area for swimming and snorkelling. The beach from the Drift Loop carpark was absolutely perfect for snorkelling - there is plenty of interesting things to see. The beach is also very protected and fine for splashing around in. The more northern beach area is a lot for swimming (especially for children) as there is less current to... More

Lovely beach with fantastic snorkelling, the drift is particularly good. Sunset is very special, especially as you can walk out on the sandbar :)

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.
