Many East Coasters don’t venture to the West much, if at all. So I was super excited to compare the two. The big different between the East and the West is that the West is so much more secluded. The beaches are untouched and you basically have it all to yourself. The water is crystal clear it will have you thinking you got dropped off in the Maldives. If I have one complaint it would be that there is an excessive amount of flies on the West.
Exmouth has stunning beaches and the best part is that you can also go diving with whale sharks. If that doesn’t float your boat you can snorkel with turtles and fishes just off the shore. The best thing about WA is that the only thing you pay for is the national park fee, all the activities such as snorkelling is free if you bring your own gear. Whale shark isn’t free, for obvious reasons.
Coral Bay is your quaint little beach town with clear blue waters. You can literally swim to the coral no far from the shore and snorkel. It’s beautiful and so close that even the most unconfident swimmers would appreciate it. They also have an area where you can see reef sharks, you can swim with them as well, but to be honest they are more scared of you then you are of them.
Jurien Bay doesn’t get too many visitors, in fact I know a lot of backpackers skip it. Jurien Bay is definitely worth a visit. It’s filled secluded beaches and stunning views.
Before coming to Perth the only Denmark I knew was Scandinavia. As soon as I got there and saw the elephant rocks I was completely blown away. There is something so beautiful about boulders on the beach. I couldn’t get enough of the place.
Albany reminded me so much of Rottnest Island it was amazing. Again, beach to beach you were left alone. Each one looking more enticing than the last one you saw.
Margaret River lived up to it’s reputation, how can you not love a place that has wineries, a river and not far from that the beach. The town is cute and the wineries are perfection.
