Protected from the wind the crystal clear waters are fantastic for snorkeling. Best location is around the little island at the end northern end of the beach. We are not very adventurous, but not far out we saw two stingrays. Why go to Bali?

We spent several hours here with our 3 year old and wow what a beach! Family friendly, gorgeous water, calm for swimming and generally quieter than other beaches nearby. We will definitely be back!

Just off Geordie bay this is quiet, secluded and beach amazing. Hidden gem, took over 30 mins via bikes.

I love the water colours in the bay. It looks very clean and beautiful colours. I enjoyed looking at the scenery while riding my bike.

Very small and secret beach. Perfect for peace and quiet by the beach with white sands and stunning clear waters. Lovely for a swim also. Would recommend a visit whilst on the island.

Some might disagree but I think no this is the most beautiful of the beaches on Rottnest. Very family friendly - the water is amazingly clear. Great rocks to climb on.

Small bay. There were big waves and it was high tide when we went so weren't able to go into the water with small children. It was still a nice place to relax and enjoy the view though.

It's amazing how all of the small bays and beaches on Rottnest are so untouched and remain naturally clean and beautiful. This small baby is so lovely just like all the others, it's turquoise water and white Sandy beaches make it perfect.
