We’d hired bikes for the day so this was one of our stops; a beautiful beach, we could have spent the whole day here. An added bonus on the day we were there ; whales passing the island were visible from the beach

This is the biggest bay in Rottnest Island. There were several boats in the bay. The beach is huge, as it follows the Geordie Bay. At certain spots on the beach, there are rocks. I admired this beauty for a while.Beautiful! Worthwhile to enjoy!

we rode our bikes around, I must say it looked quite tacky as an area, didn't make me want to stay there at all, despite the beautiful surroundings
