“It Looked like a Secluded Paradise”

Salmon Bay is the most beautiful spot to snorkel on Rottnest Island. We got there at 9am so there was nobody else around; it looked like a secluded paradise.

The water there was so clear and calm that just a few metres into the water you could see all the coral and fish. We spent hours in the water, there was plenty to discover. I really didn’t expect so much colourful fish and coral because we were so close to the beach. It was really magical.

Even though the water was fairly cool, we didn’t even notice because there was so much to see and look at. At one point we looked up and realised we had drifted further away from the beach. The further you go, the bigger the fish are.
