Coral Bay is one of the two towns situated along the Ningaloo coast, with Exmouth being the other. Coral Bay is a smaller town with a population of 245 people (as of 2021 census data).
Unlike Exmouth, which is located on the east side of the Northwest cape, the town of Coral Bay is situated right on the Ningaloo Reef. This makes it another great destination for people of all ages seeking both a relaxing waterfront holiday or an adventure based experience.
There are many tours on offer in Coral Bay, these include glass bottom boats, diving tours, manta rays tours, whale watching tours, whale shark tours, scenic flights, quad bike tours, catamaran tours or simply enjoy lazing by the beach. We highly recommend partaking in a Manta Ray tour while you are in the area, as Coral Bay has the only resident population of manta rays along the Ningaloo Reef that are there year round!
Due to its smaller size, Coral Bay has limited accommodation and therefore bookings are necessary during the Peak Season.
Airport transfers are available from Learmonth Airport or alternatively you can hire a car and pick it up from the Airport and return the vehicle to the Airport on your return flight home.
