Sandy Bay, Exmouth (Western Australia)
Sandy Bay is proclaimed to be one of the best windsurfing & kitesurfing spots in WA for those that like to sail on flat water in a protected bay environment.
It is located 70km south of Exmouth on the Nargaloo coast (approx 1,300km north of Perth) in the Cape Range National Park (so no pets are allowed in the park).
The water in this marine park is blue and crystal clear and that bay has a sandy bottom.
Other activities include shore-based fishing (boat fishing is not allowed), swimming, snorkelling and kayaking are also popular at this location.
