THE place for snorkeling in Exmouth, easy beach access and lots to see below the surface! Can get busy at times, with the carpark reaching its maximum capacity (get in early!)

Beautiful clear water, absolute highlight of Exmouth. We went early and had the Bay side to ourselves, but by the time we left it was starting to get busy. Drift side is better for snorkelling. Entry to the National Park costs $12.

It didn't compare to the last time we went (5 years ago) but still beautiful - although go early to avoid the tourists!

Turquoise Bay and eponymous beach are 63 kms from Exmouth, less than an hour's drive on bitumen. Once you arrive there you walk from the car park (ample parking) on wooden boards to an interpretive area overlooking the bay and beach, and with a number of metal panels explaining the ecology, marine life, the wilderness area of which it forms...

Thought the oyster stacks were better, not a place to take the children and apart from the nice beach thought it was a blow out due to the rip. Yes it was nice, no I didn't enjoy that much, over rated

Beautiful Turquoise Bay, i never tire of it. Pristine beach and the best snorkelling reef you could find. A walk out into the ocean from the top end of the beach and the drift current carries you along the coral reef. A myriad of tropical fish, turtles, the occasional reef shark just minding their own business. It is truly a... More

The beach is the typical postcard tropical beach with white sand and, well, turquoise colored water. We came in the morning and stayed all day, alternating between snorkeling, resting, eating and just splashing in the water. The water was so calm and the snorkeling awesome - saw rays, turtles, huge parrot fish, and a big variety of others. It is... More

We visited later in the day, around 4pm and it was very quiet. The beach was incredible, the kind of images you see on postcards and screensavers. The water was lovely, and so many fish swam happily around us. Really worth a visit.

White sand, turquoise water, fishes swimming among your legs as you wade out. More colorful fishes and coral about 200m out for snorkeling. The beach is the most crowded of all the beaches we visited around Exmouth.
