The water is very clear and shallow enough to see the fish and sharks swimming around in the waters. It is a lovely place to get a lovely view of the coast line.

Not many places to eat in town, accomodation is old and out dated. Limited things to do and see very remote

These guys are brilliant & very professional, perfect nature cruises. Always plenty of sea life around, September is a nice time to go, very mild temps 20-24c probably a few showers here and there. Enjoy

The beaches are very calm in Denham, little lagoon is also very good for kids with shallow waters. Don't miss out on heading over to Monkey Mia for dolphin experience and great swimming.
