Wasn't the nicest day but was very pretty to see. Would definitely recommend coming here in summer. The water looked stunning and we really wanted to swim but it was too cold and there were jelly fish all over the beach.

Very cold day so no one was snorkeling but have heard this place to be excellent for this. Even so, the place was a good place to stop for a great view and crisp air. There is a shelter there for a picnic as well.

This bay was one of the best on the island for snorkeling, a must see if you visit the island. Lots of great fish life and Cray's to see if you get in the water for a snorkel.

Not to be missed if you are on Rottnest. A beautiful beach for sun bathing, swimming and snorkeling.

If you visit Salmon Bay on a nice day you are likely to be totally enchanted (and that also goes for its equally charming neighbour, Little Salmon Bay). The coastline is rugged, the beach sand soft and white, and the water crystal clear and dazzles...More
