Turquoise Bay offers visitors a chance to drift along the Ningaloo Reef and see hard corals and an abundance of marine life, such as turtles and octopods. The beach, rarely crowded by tourists, features a wide strip of warm white sand where you can spend the day relaxing in the sun or picnicking. You can also dive or snorkel here and come face-to-face with the many sea creatures making their home in these blue waters. There's very little shade on this beach, so bring your own umbrella or small tent. When diving or swimming along this coastline, be careful not to get caught by the strong riptide, and keep children and novice swimmers in the shallow areas near the sand. Using our world travel planner, Exmouth attractions like Turquoise Bay can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Turquoise Bay reviews
Nice beach, a bit busier than other ones but lots of fish in a short distance. The drift takes you from one point to another nicely and you see impressive coral and fish on the way. Can't go to Cape.... more »
What a tranquil beach, you know why it’s the best in WA, even on a windy day it was still so clear and stunning. Both areas for snorkelling were the same to us and both equally great. Heaps of fish... more »
Tranquil and beautiful, well worth the 50min drive from Exmouth. Road is pretty good for most cars campers etc but parking limited once you get there, so don't sleep in! The drift loop is awesome, can be a bit scary at first as the current is strong but what you see is worth it. Pack lunch and plenty of water as no facilities out there but do have toilet facilities
No turtles last week
