Monkey Mia is a charming little coastal resort town on the Coral Coast along the Indian Ocean, north of Perth and Denham. Its claim to fame is the Monkey Mia Reserve on the eastern shore of the Peron Peninsula in Australia’s Shark Bay World Heritage Area. The precious nature reserve is known for its population of wild dolphins, especially bottlenose dolphins, and their daily feeding program early each morning. Local wildlife cruise trips for dolphin viewing and daily feedings are popular attractions. Monkey Mia is also great for exploring the region’s rich Aboriginal culture and heritage. The seaside town’s white sand beaches and numerous water sports options are also popular with travelers.
