Diving and snorkeling holidays are perfect where Ningaloo Reef meets the beach of the North West Cape. It is a virtually untouched barrier reef of 260km length protecting a shallow, brilliant white sandy lagoon of clear tropical waters. One of the rare places on earth where you are able to walk from the beach straight onto a coral reef.

More than 500 species of tropical fish and 220 species of coral make-up the marine park at Ningaloo Reef; a protected marine park. Slip on a snorkel or diving gear slip into the water and you are suspended in turquoise shallows surrounded by delicate lace coral fronds of vivid pink, orange and yellow. Darting in and out is a metallic rainbow of attendants.

“Turquoise Bay” is appropriately named. A crystal clear lagoon with coral reefs teeming with brightly coloured fish. The ideal place to relax, swim or dive with the abundant array of marine life only metres from the shoreline. Snorkelling within the bay is quite rewarding and easy. To do the more popular drift snorkel, walk south down the beach about 300 metres. Enter the water, swim straight out about 30 to 50 metres and let the current take you along in a northerly direction, effortlessly gliding over coral bombies before exiting near the sand bar.
