A great day had on Rottnest Island. We hired some bikes and stopped for a swim here. Don't forget sunscreen as it gets very hot.

Although we visited in hot weather but the beach was lovely to spend some time. Seems a sort of secluded beach with white sand

Beautiful little bay, great if you can get a quite day. Only downside is you only need a few families to visit and its full. We visited early on a morning when it was empty and left at lunch time as it was getting full.

Awesome snorkelling here, we got to see a lot of big fish and even crays and we hardly went out at all. The reef is quite shallow so I felt very safe. Coral and small sea slugs as well.

Parakeet Bay and beach are both gorgeous and a great place to enjoy the views, the beach, relax or go for a swim. Parakeet Bay is noted as one of the best beaches on Rottnest and I could see why. Make sure it's on your list to visit.

An excellent safe beach with easy access and not crowded. We spent many happy hours here when we were boat owners.

This is one of my favourite places to visit. Always beautiful and is nicely sheltered from strong winds. Love parakeet bay!
