Endless Water Adventures!

Exmouth and its surrounds have a range of beautiful beaches to explore, from Town Beach just 1km from the centre of town, Bundegi Beach (a great spot for kayaking and fishing), and Lighthouse Bay for surfing. If you are there between from November to March, head to Jurabi Coastal Reserve to witness the turtle’s nesting!

Turquoise Bay has pristine waters and a rich diversity of coral, fish and other marine life. A popular spot for divers and snorkellers as you can swim within just a few meters of the glorious Ningaloo Reef, one of the longest near-shore reefs in the world. Or if you prefer a more relaxing day just simply enjoy relaxing on the secluded beach with a good book.

A 90-minute drive from Exmouth, Coral Bay was named for the beautiful coral gardens which lie just metres from the beach.  Swim with the local manta rays, quad bike on the beach, take a cruise on the bay or simply enjoy the laid-back vibe of this picturesque town. 

Don’t forget to take the opportunity to swim with the world’s largest fish, the whale shark, out of Coral Bay and Exmouth. A once in a lifetime experience not to be missed!
