A very short walk from the bus stop. It must be popular in summer, judging by the number of bike racks. Crystal clear water and very white sand.

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!

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.
