We enjoyed seeing the sun set over the ocean as we also watched a couple of whales heading South. I would recommend this but also be careful to look out for wildlife when driving back to Exmouth at dusk.

If you want a great view of Exmouth & its beaches this is the place to go. I believe it is only place where you can watch the sunset & sunrise. Unfortunately I did not get to see either.

Lovely spot for views out to sea looking at Ningaloo Reef. In season you can spot whales swimming and breaching out at sea - humpback and calves during September/October.
