Welcome to Coral Bay


Coral reefs lie just off the town beach, making it brilliant for snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing. It's also a great base for outer-reef activities such as scuba diving, fishing and whale-watching (June to November), and swimming with whale sharks (April to July) and manta rays.

Development is strictly limited, so expect higher prices for food and accommodation. Exmouth, 152km away, has more options. The town is busy from April to October.
