Coral Bay to Exmouth
Exmouth is Ningaloo’s largest town, and at the northern access point to the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area. It offers a vibrant range of accommodation, facilities, tours and shops.
South of Exmouth, Coral Bay is popular with families, and accommodation is just a hop, skip and a jump from beautiful Bill’s Bay. There are plenty of activities and tours to explore the area and, although there’s only a handful of shops and cafes, this laidback little town has all you need for an action-packed getaway or relaxing seaside holiday.
Red Bluff and Gnaraloo are at the southern gateway to the Ningaloo Reef World Heritage Area, and offer excellent surfing and wildlife encounters in a ruggedly beautiful and remote section of the coast.
