Coral Bay is a lovely little fishing town on Western Australia’s Coral Coast, north of the Tropic of Capricorn. Its white sand beaches are the perfect gateway to the world’s largest and Australia’s only fringing reef, the Ningaloo Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The crystal clear, turquoise blue waters surrounding Coral Bay and the nearby Ningaloo Marine Park have to be seen to be believed. Great for leisurely swimming, scuba diving, and snorkeling, the area’s rich marine life draws nature lovers from far and wide. Wildlife cruises on glass-bottom boats are popular for viewing stunning coral gardens and diverse reef habitats teeming with life. In season, Coral Bay makes for one of the best bases for whale watching in Australia, especially for whale sharks and manta rays. This single street town with its stunning milky white, soft sand beach is tiny enough to be comfortably covered on foot.
