Amateur snorkelers, but we had a ball. Easy walk from the car park to the beach. Watched for turtles from the shore. Awesome beach,

This is an amazing location to be. Water is, just like the name says, turquoise and the beach is close to white. On top of this, you have the reef at few meters from the beach and can enjoy a see stream that carries you along the reef. Obviously there are dangers, this is Australia! So, you need to pay... More

Gorgeous family friendly beach! Beautiful white sand intermixed with interesting shells and coral. Easy snorkelling just off the beach. Just be aware of potential rips and go early to avoid the strong breeze!

This beach is one of the best in the world. Beats Phi Phi Island and some parts of the South Pacific. Current can be quite strong.

I recommend the 'drift' beach for a full reef experience. Swam through a school of fish, saw heaps of coral and varied species. The other beach takes a bit more to swim out to coral, but I did see a turtle, so there's that.

Turquoise Bay is known for snorkeling of the "drift loop" on the south end of Turquoise Bay and this is great but the north end "bay area" seemed to have more turtles and fish when we went...

Snorkel up and get in the water for some amazing underwater sights. This is a marine park and the coral and sands are teeming with many varieties of fish. A pretty good beach as well. There is a drift her which can get quite strong - recommended for confident swimmers only.
