Time and time again Turquoise Bay is named in the Top 10 beaches of the world. If you only had one option to see the coral and fish in Cape Range nation Park then go to this site. The sheer white sand, turquoise and blue coloured water with the coral reef only a 50 muter swim from shire makes it the prime spot for everyone. My tip is to come in the early morning around 8am to get the best visibility and calmness of the water.

The beach is world class. Beautiful aquamarine water with reef close to shore that you can drift snorkel on. It is in a remote location so you are not inundated by crowds. It is part of the Cape Range national park so there is a fee attached to enter the park, but it is not very much. Well worth a visit

Walk up the drift loop beach for about 250m. Then swim out about 50-100m. Then just drift with the current and watch it all unfold underneath. Choose when to dive down and take a closer look. Absolutely wonderous. Full of life!

Drift dive was done with ease by 52yo dad, two teenage boys, and 11yo daughter. Recommend to anyone who enjoys swimming and snorkelling. Tip - put the effort in and walk up the beach.

We traveled from Exmouth to visit turquoise bay. It’s about a 40min trip by car which sees you travelling through the National park. There is a $15 entry for the park unless you have an all park pass. The car park was easy to get to and there are toilets down there as you arrive. The beach was immaculate however we went on a slightly stormy day so as you could imagine the water was a little cloudy and it started to rain. It’s definitely worth the visit however there isn’t anything else there so would recommend taking food and drinks with you and head down on a sunny day if you plan on staying on the beach. I can imagine the view would have been even more stunning.

Best beach for snorkeling. The water is indeed turquoise. So many fishes around small bommies not far from the beach that you can easily swim to. Good for kids. We saw a reef shark which is pretty cool. Get there early as even in winter time it’s very popular and parking gets really tight.

Drove to Turquoise Bay in our hire car for a day trip, to go snorkelling. We did have our own snorkelling gear, but you can hire it in Exmouth. The entrance to the National park was $15 for the car, but you can snorkel to your hearts content.
Great drift snorkel with plenty of fish life and coral. Crystal clear water, 27 degree water temp, 32 degree day. It doesn’t get any better then that🙏🏽

When you’re planning a trip to Exmouth everyone says “You have to visit Turquoise Bay.” And they’re right.

There’s a $15 entry fee to get into the park ($25 for a 5 day pass) and it’s worth every cent.

Words cannot capture how spectacular the beach is. Long stretches of white sand and crystal blue water. We were there in January 2021 and the water was warm and absolutely full of fish swimming around your feet.

The water is incredibly clear and calm. The shallow slope of the coast combined with the flat water means even non-confident swimmers can enjoy it.

But the best advice I can give is to take snorkel gear. If you don’t have any there is a place in Exmouth where you can hire it at very reasonable rates. But if you have it, you’ll have an experience at the beach only a handful of people can match.

Just a short drive out of Exmouth you come across this beauty. You do enter through national Parks so if you do not have a pass it is $15 for a day pass or $25 for a three day pass. If your staying in Exmouth for a few days the three day one is the one we opted for as you will go back!
Snorkelling is great also with crystal Waters and calm bay.
Limited rubbish bins so bring a bag with you if your heading out with the family for the day.

If you go make sure you get there early. Limited parking we payed to go in the national park go to the bay drove round and round for over 30 minutes no parking what a ripoff. Go to Coral bay instead.

One of the better places to swim/snorkel along the reef.

Parking is a real premium, no where near enough spaces for the number of visitors who would like to visit. A easy walk to the beach for swimming and/or snorkeling.

The water is great for snorkeling, not a lot of side current nor waves and/or swell. Easy to stay around coral/rock outcrops to see the marine life.

A lot of marine life, spotted a good size turtle as well as 100's of fish species.
