Some might disagree but I think no this is the most beautiful of the beaches on Rottnest. Very family friendly - the water is amazingly clear. Great rocks to climb on.

Small bay. There were big waves and it was high tide when we went so weren't able to go into the water with small children. It was still a nice place to relax and enjoy the view though.

It's amazing how all of the small bays and beaches on Rottnest are so untouched and remain naturally clean and beautiful. This small baby is so lovely just like all the others, it's turquoise water and white Sandy beaches make it perfect.

Parakeet Bay is definitely worth the trip out to see - the water is beautiful and the sand dunes are fun to explore or relax on.

Just a 15 minute bike ride (via Geordie Bay) from the visitors centre is Parakeet Bay. A great swimming / snorkeling spot and a great place for a picnic. Beautiful blue clear water. Stunning spot.

At $20,00, the bus option is good value as you are not worn out by the time you find a bay that really appeals. All the bays are lovely. This one is fairly small. There is a picnic table above that offered a little shelter...More

We were looking for somewhere that we could cycle to and snorkel. This bay offers some sunshade and is very close to one of the bus stops if you want to avoid cycling. The snorkelling was quite good and we saw some dolphins playing a...More
