This is one of most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. Perfect for kids as it is sheltered from the waves and current. You can also do drift snorkelling just around the Bay and watch some of the better snorkelling in Australia. Don't miss.

This was the highlight of my trip north, the beach was incredible and easily the best beach I visited in Exmouth. If you do nothing else, visit this place. secluded beach with white sands beautiful clear water and crops of coral further out. It is also in a bay so it's more protected than the flow channel around the corner... More

Definitely one of the most beautiful beaches on this planet. Nomen est omen, the name of the beach is very appropriate. Turquoise water and white sands, perfect for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling.

This beach is without doubt the best beach exmouth has to offer. It is right next to the drift snorkel location too so it's a perfect day of great snorkelling and sun bathing. The water is crystal clear and the wildlife is amazing. Go see it!

My first ever coral reef and it was everything I'd hoped it would be. Saw my first sharks and, on one occasion, saw a turtle the second I put my head under the water.

Turquoise Bay is a gorgeous example of clear turquoise water contrasting with bright white sand. The bay is famous for its clarity and coral, and by walking up the beach you can 'drift' with the current past the coral, fish, turtles, reef sharks, starfish, clams .... The coral was damaged in a cyclone and is still recovering but there is... More

Fantastic place to snorkel, if you have the opportunity to take a kayak bring it along. There is no other place where you can simply walk out and swim to a pristine reef. This place is awesome. I have the pleasure living here in Exmouth and I am grateful for the reef being so close. There is a small cost... More

We stopped Turquoise Bay and loved the contrast of theblue water and white sand. Crowds come here but even son there is plenty of space. The coral, however, shows wear and tear from the increased traffic. Be gentle so that future generations can enjoy.

We shared a taxi (the only one in Exmouth) to Turquoise Bay for swimming and snorkeling. For such a renowned place for snorkeling, I was stunned that there were no bathrooms. We snapped a picture of the coastline, indicating the shore side as our changing room, and the ocean side as our restroom. Of course, this didn't stop us like... More
