Beautiful Beaches

WA beaches have been ranked among the best in the world in a recent survey by Trip Advisor.  

Turquoise Bay in Exmouth was rated one of the top beaches in the world by TripAdvisor!

Turquoise Bay in Exmouth, Western Australia, came 20th in the travel review website’s list of best beaches in the world thanks to exceptional snorkelling and opportunities for exploring the reef. Known as one of Western Australia's best beaches, Turquoise Bay in Exmouth is the perfect spot to spend an afternoon relaxing, swimming and snorkelling. The white, sandy shores give way to clear waters harbouring a plethora of marine life including coral, fish and other marine life.

The pristine waters at Turquoise Bay make it easy to swim and snorkel within a few metres of Ningaloo Reef, one of the world’s largest fringing reefs, stretching for 260 kilometres off Western Australia’s mid north coast and home to migrating whale sharks during March-July. Exploring the reef at the snorkel drift is popular at Turquoise Bay. Enter the water at the southern end of the beach and let the current take you over the reef for a fantastic snorkelling experience.

With the Easter break coming up in less than a month, April is a great time to enjoy the last few days of sun and makes for a great road trip from Perth!

Cable Beach in Broome was also rated one of the top beaches in the world by TripAdvisor![/caption]

Broome’s Cable Beach came in at number 25 which was described as “magical” and adored for offering camel rides and “unmissable” sunsets. Broome's Cable Beach is known around the world for its 22 kilometres of sun-kissed white sand, turquoise water, rich red soil and spectacular Indian Ocean sunsets. Cable Beach is a long, flat beach, with gentle rolling waves perfect for swimming, sunbathing and beachcombing. It’s no surprise two of WA’s beaches made the list for 2014.

Huffington Post writer Petra Shepard couldn't get enough of Rottnest Island beaches on her trip to Perth!

The Huffington Post travel writer Petra Shepherd recently visited WA and couldn’t get enough of our pristine beaches and relaxed lifestyle. Petra said what Western Australia has that famous South American beaches lacks is breath-taking beaches that seemingly go on for ever with miles and miles of near deserted white sand.

“Some of the prettiest beaches I've ever encountered, not to mention the bluest water, can be found at Rottnest Island,” she said.
