For a lazy holiday of swimming and relaxing, head to Sandy Bay near Exmouth on Western Australia’s mid north coast.
The shallow waters and wide expanse of endless white sand make this a great choice for families.
The kids will love wading knee-deep in the clear Indian Ocean, and there are also shaded tables perfect for a picnic.
Sandy Bay is popular for wind surfing and kite surfing. When the sea breeze is in, wind surfers and kite surfers zip along the bay’s shallow water at high speed.
Located in the Ningaloo Marine Park, Sandy Bay is known for its excellent fishing. Throw in a line from the beach and you’re likely to snare a catch from Ningaloo’s teeming marine population.
Sandy Bay is located approximately 80 kilometres from Exmouth. A self-drive vehicle is required to reach Sandy Bay.
