It will not be an exaggeration to state that the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia is one of the last ocean paradises: a serene habitat untouched by advancing modernity. Home to one of the rarest aquatic flora and fauna, the largest near-shore reef runs past exotic beaches, private islands, and green mountain ranges. There is a whole world of adventure and exploration just waiting to be discovered.
The best period to visit this exciting, vibrant coastal paradise is between the months from June to August when the temperature is in the low 20’s °C range.
The exotic reef offers intrigue and interest, no matter personal preferences and tastes. For the explorers, they can sail away to pristine water habitats such as Coral Bay and get up, close and personal with the tropical fish and rare aquatic species. For the adventurers, they can explore the rugged Cape Range National Park that proudly displays its gorgeous limestone shears. For the adrenaline junkies, they can hit any one of the golden beaches on the reef and indulge in exciting water-sports.
One of the highlights is swimming right besides whale sharks and humpback whales in the gorgeous blue waters. The Ningaloo Reef is a paradise that never fails to surprise. australiascoralcoast.com ◼
