Coral Bay, Ningaloo
There are not many places that can truly take ones breath away but Coral Bay…..WOW!
We stayed at 14 mile beach on Warroora Station where camping is wilderness style right on the beach.
A visit to Ningaloo Reef is why we were in this area to begin with and so we went off to Coral Bay where you really can just snorkel Ningaloo Reef straight off the beach. At Pentecost River (Gibb River Road) we met 2 Marine Biologists who claimed that Ningaloo Reef is better than the Great Barrier Reef and while the judgement on GBR is still out (I am yet to see the outer reef), I can’t imagine many Reef systems in the world that can stand up to Ningaloo.
Our last day we spent exploring other beaches on the Station itself and came across Elle’s Beach which, rumour has it, is Elle McPherson’s favourite beach hence the name. The little smudge is a Humpback Whale just off our camp site.
Nette and I want to re-visit a lot of places that we have seen on this trip in the years to come but Ningaloo is perhaps the only place that we will re-visit on this trip itself. Once our trip to Perth & Oman is complete we will definitely head back to Ningaloo. Can’t wait!
