Located within Cape Range National Park, Turquoise Bay is a tropical haven for lounging in the sun, swimming or snorkelling. With two areas: Bay Loop or Drift Loop, there's something for all ages and confidence level. The postcard Turquoise Bay is an ideal starting point to practice your snorkelling skills. Once confident head over to the drift loop. From the... More

Another one of Western Australia's beautiful beaches, we visited towards the end of January which is a quiet time so there was less than 10 other people to share it with, the snorkeling is good but the corals aren't as brightly colored as the east coast. The fish are plentiful and brightly colored and it has plenty of safe swimming... More

We loved snorkelling at Turquoise Bay and would definitely return again! Saw a few turtles and a couple of harmless sharks. Lots of beautiful Coral and plenty of other sea life.

A beautiful beach, golden sands, family friendly, and easy snorkelling. Totally unspoilt, it lived up to its name.

On a windy day, the drift loop can be too much. But the bay loop is great. Corals are healthy and there's an abundance of fish. There are also rays and turtles.

Title says it all... this is a wonderful place and worth the drive! Easy snorkelling on the reef and large rays were seen swimming in shallow water.

This is actually in the Cape Range National Park but has one of the most beautiful beaches and best snorkelling opportunities. The Ningaloo Reef runs pretty close to the shore here so it has crystal clear water which gives it a turquoise colour. As it is close to the reef it also allows easy access for snorkeling to visit the... More

Stunning bay for snorkelling but beware of strong currents. Lovely sandy beach and water is actually turquoise!

Beautiful place - highly recommend. It is magic to see the beautiful blue water and loved our swim and snorkel there and walking along the soft sand - didn't want to leave. It gets hot in the summer so take an umbrella / gazebo and slip, slop and slap. Great kids beach. Take your camera and gopro as you can... More

Nice place to visit and stay. Unfortunately wind was higher than normal apparently and made snorkelling and sun bathing a little difficult. Definitely will be back
