Put Turquoise Bay on the top of your list if you're looking for a beach in the Exmouth area. Less than an hour's drive from Exmouth, Turquoise Bay is just spectacular. Crystal clear warm water, lovely Ningaloo Reef to explore - just perfect. Both times we went - the place was deserted. We arrived to an empty beach at 8... More

Beautiful beach and the drift snorkel is incredible! Also you need to make sure you are a good swimmer if doing the drift snorkel as the currents are strong... however the bay itself is so save to swim in. I have to say that due to the crouds its actually worth hitting it early or later in the day around... More

The kids loved the beach, I would recommend taking a sun shade shelter for the kids to sit under, beach toys for this kids buckets and so forth your own water we had... More

Beautiful beach and fantastic snorkelling. Could get busy in the peak season. Saw huge variety of fish and coral. Even saw a turtle. Some people have suggested the current is strong, but if you follow the instructions provided by the Exmouth visitor's centre and the plaque at the beach you can use the current to drift across the coral with...

Visited here on recommendation from loads of people. The drift loop was a great snorkel with lots to see but having forgotten our fins a little challenging with the current. Moved onto the main beach which is stunningly beautiful but the snorkellIng there very disappointing ..oyster stacks nearby has much more to see

Spent 3 days at Turquoise Bay, and what a beautiful place. One bay with warm shallow water,the colour of which gives the bay its name. The other bay for drift snorkelling. What an experience when you can walk out for 10 metres at one end of the bay, then let the current float you over the most wonderful coral reefs,... More

This fantastic beach/bay is brillian for kids and adults alike. The bay area is flat, has no drift or tow and is crystal clear on white, white sand. Around the point there is a drift which makes if better for stronger swimmers, and the snorkelling here is excellent. Having travelled fairly extensively this beach is the one we compare others...
