Parakeet Bay is my personal favourite on Rottnest Island. The bay has a very cosy vibe as the local rock formations create a serene cove like experience. The water here is calm and offers some expectational snorkelling. I was lucky enough to spot a large...More

There are 2 beautiful beaches here: Little Parakeet (smaller but better for snorkelling) and Parakeet Bay, with a long, crescent-shaped beach, which was quieter and not so busy with families.

We caught the free shuttle to Jordie Bay then walked about 10 minutes north to Parakeet Bay. Not much shade unless you can find a cliff overhang but super-duper snorkelling and bay. The fish were enormous and you didn't have to go out far at...More

Great place to start off. We caught the bus and got off at stop 5 and kids spent an easy hour until the next bus came. Lovely views and a kid friendly beach. Also has a toilet.

Just a beautiful little bay that you can paddle in and sit on the beach and watch the world go by. Absolutely lovely. Nature at it's best.

Little Parrot beach was probably the best beach we went to on our 3 day trip over the Island - small, intimate, nice sand with cliff backdrop, calm clear water, and good snorkling for these latitudes. You can get there for free by using the...More

On Rottnest, in the morning I like being in Salmon Bay/Little Salmon Bay. Once the wind starts coming from the south, in the afternoon Parakeet Bay and Little Parakeet Bay come into their own! Parakeet Bay is a longer sweep of sand where I've seen...More
