“Unique Landscape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

While it is good distance from the capital cities it is well worth the drive there. The sea is so blue against the white sand or red rocks and there a a few interesting places to visit such as Monkey Mia, Shell Beach, Ocean Park and the Stromatolites plus the other beaches and cruises in the area. Suitable for all ages and at least three days are needed here.

“Scenery to take your breath away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Shark Bay is a truly beautiful place. The scenery is amazing. The colour of the sea is so ridiculously blue that it almost looks fake! Red sand, white sand and blue skies and ocan all combine to make a breathtaking combination.

Lots to do - wildlife,national park, cruises, walks, Ocean Park and of course the dolphins at Monkey Mia. So much of Australia to see that I anticipated only going once but it's so beautiful, I can't imagine not going back again.

“Great Sunsets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is my favourite time of the day so where ever I can catch a setting sun is a happy time for me. This is one of those places, it is very quiet peaceful area & great for relaxing
