Fodor's Review

This pool-like bay is one of Rottnest's most popular, both for its safe, shallow waters and for its proximity to the main settlement. Protected by an outer reef, the ocean is crystal clear, the waves are gentle and you'll sometimes see little fish darting about. Amenities: toilets, showers, lifeguards. Best for: swimming.
