A visit to stunning Hamelin Bay is a must do on many a holiday schedule. A vast bay of bright white sand, turquoise waters filled with marine life and spectacular coastal cliff walks. Swimming, snorkeling, fishing, diving - you can do it all!

Come and meet the famous sting rays at Hamelin Bay. These beautiful creatures love to come to the shoreline to say hello to visitors.
For the bird enthusiasts! Walk to the freshwater lake near the caravan park and look for Waterbirds including Grey Teal, Purple Swamphen and Grebes. Collard Sparrowhawk and little Eagle have been seen here. Visit the beach for possible sightings of Hooded Plover. In summer, the Sanderling and Bridled Tern are welcome visitors! Hamelin Bay is home to a caravan park, small shop, public toilets and boat ramp.

One of the best beaches in the world in my opinion. I'm pretty sure that Hamelin bay is one of the only places in the world where you can pat a wild stingray. The beach is also expansive and beautiful and if there is little wind, I would happily spend most of my day on the beach. The water is cold but there is lots of opportunity for snorkeling, fishing moments and overall fun. Callum Johnston

Amazing bay with the added attraction of local sting rays gliding along the shoreline. As an added bonus (depending on your point of view) also a 1.5 metre shark also in the shallows. Amazing, a must see spot. Allan Burton

Visited this lovely and quiet beach on a sunny summer morning and there were lots of sting rays around. These animals are friendly and welcoming, making me feel very special and excited. My son was so happy to see these wild animals in their nature habitats. Beautiful beach, calm waves, great for families and young kids. Shengnan Xiao

I visited that place 3 weeks ago and clicked that scene. I simply love that place. If you plan to visit that place, make sure you reach in the early morning to see stingrays. I suggest staying for a night or two there as well. A caravan park is located just next to the bay. Check my insta @shahabz_9 for more photos of Western Australia. Shahbaz Khan

Take you time, find the sting rays, enjoy the water, pristine beaches and explore the rock formations. The drive to Hamelin bay is just as picturesque. Nikunj Shah
