A group of friends and I recently stayed on Rottnest Island, boy what a regret that was! They clearly do not want young people on the Island as we were regularly visited by the police and threatened via an eviction notice... Not a fun time

Calm waters, turquoise seas, white sands. A great little place to spend the day or to just watch the sun go down. A wonderful place to calm and relax you.

The pristine waters of the Basin at Rottnest are just so inspiring. White sand, crystal clear water and lovely jagged cliffs - you feel like you've died and gone to heaven!

This Basin is a welcome retreat after cycling throughout the island but nothing more than that. Water is clean and beach as well. But don't go to Rottenest Island just for the beach. Then you will be disappointed

Look it's a beach, other than toilets there is nothing there so bring drinks and food. The beach is not flash, small by WA standards . Might be good for snorkelling.

This great natural safe swimming and snorkeling spot now has great facilities. Lots of shade if you want it and great ablutions plus many hand rails. Really safe for children and shark proof.
