More shorebirds stop off here on their migration than anywhere else in Australia so it's a great spot to see them and if you combine with the Broome Bird Observatory then you can hire a guide and learn a lot.

Great beach for photography, watching the sunset, fossicking amongst the rocks, having a quick dip in the water, fishing, walking, sun bathing or just sightseeing.

A beautiful bay. Very scenic and picturesque. The sunrises over the water here. On nights with a full moon the ripples on the bay create the famous stairway to the moon. You can also marvel at the king tides here a low tide at 6am becomes a high tide at noon with a difference of 10m in water level. Nature... More

We walked from Moonlight Bay Resort, along the path past Matso's (stopped for a beer on the way home), explored Bedford Park (lots of memorials), spent some time at the 'blackbirding' memorial on the bay side of the road opposite Bedford Park (you must explore the history behind this memorial), then onto the Museum (well worth a visit - find...

Went there when the tide was nearly out and they younger ones could play around in the shallows. Tried to swim out to some rocks out on the right and scared myself half to death swimming half a meter from a stingray barb as it shot off.. Amazing to see the tide not long after go out past the rocks... More

On a nice day this little bay is top notch. Very nicely laid out with lawns and trees and great views of the bay. Good for early morning photographs. Very popular with locals and tourists and particularly children. Lovely kiosk which serves great coffee and eats.

The colour of the sea at this bay is stunning - tourquoise blue, beautiful. Fascinating too to watch the variation in the tides which at full moon is very dramatic.

Lovely area to wander around and to walk along the foreshore, or to have a picnic in the park. There is a lovely little restaurant that is close to the water and it gives you a wonderful view of the bay even in wet weather.
