Awesome snorkelling here, we got to see a lot of big fish and even crays and we hardly went out at all. The reef is quite shallow so I felt very safe. Coral and small sea slugs as well.

Parakeet Bay and beach are both gorgeous and a great place to enjoy the views, the beach, relax or go for a swim. Parakeet Bay is noted as one of the best beaches on Rottnest and I could see why. Make sure it's on your list to visit.

I went there in the afternoon and it was less crowded than in the morning. The sea is very quiet, no waves, and it's great for swiming and snorkeling. Make sure you put on sunscreen and wear a hat, since there is no shade whatsoever. To get there I took the free shuttle to Geordie Bay and then walked around... More

We snorkelled at Little Parakeet Bay and saw much more than at The Basin and there were a lot less people here.Very sheltered and very pretty. But make sure you secure your bags and valuables before you enter the water as the black ravens will open backpacks and food bags to steal whatever they can get their beaks on. You... More

This is a nice little beach. After a long ride it was good to stop and this is an ideal place to relax. The temptation is to keep going as there are many beaches along the bicycle circuit but this was peaceful, out of wind and no-one around - so we romantically christened it our place of retreat and then...

It's a must see/do destination! Simply amazingly beautiful!!! Seriously beautiful. It's an easy bike ride from the main jetty, and worth the effort.
