“Nothing else like it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely beautiful. The reefs are amazing, right up there along side The Barrier Reef. A vast array of sealife and colours that will blow your mind. We were lucky enough to see 2 huge reef sharks which topped of an amazing day ... A must do.

“Magic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Fantastic snorkeling, safe swimming, no beach and a rocky entrance to the water! Listen to the high tide warnings so you don't damage the coral.

“Fabulous, but only at high tide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Based on local recommendation we ventured from Exmouth to this snorkling spot arriving 40 minutes before high tide. The coral is not as colourful as Northern Queensland but is impressive in its own right, but the fish variety and quantity was fabulous. This is a low reef area so the warning about only snorkling around high tide is really important - too easy to damage the corals at lower tides. Not many easy entry points at high tide (perhaps only 1). We tried to go in off rocks and took a hit doing so. Still, it was well worth it.
