During the first day of our trip to WA we visited Rottnest Island and rented bikes for the whole day. Cycling on Rottnest island is great fun, with Little Salmon Bay as a snorkeling highlight! You can easily spend all day on the island!

Salmon bay is a unique and beautiful spot on Rottnest island. The beautiful sands and clear water proves an excellent tourist spot but it’s also not that busy so it’s not overwhelming!

Beautiful snorkeling and a beautiful outlook. You can bus or bike ride to get there. Good walkway to get down to the beach.

We came here on a Friday afternoon and had the beach to our selves! It is a great spot to sit and relax for a few minutes or all day. Bring along a snorkel, heaps of fish and corals to see.
