Just sublime

Breathtaking scenery, pristine white shell beaches, and crystal clear waters complete with wild dolphins; it’s no wonder Shark Bark has World Heritage status. This is the ultimate relaxation escape you'll never want to leave.

Escape the winter chills in Shark Bay

Sunshine almost every day of the year, could it be true? Yes it’s true. With little rainfall and mild temperatures all year round, Shark Bay is a destination you can enjoy anytime. Locals suggest the weather is at its best from June to October when the winds are a little lighter. Summer months can get pretty hot and the southerly winds can really mess up your hairdo, although Monkey Mia does offer some protection.

Shark Bay is known for its spectacular landscapes including breathtaking wildflower displays. Although you can see these natural blooms throughout the year, it is from July to September when the inland areas are blanketed with a vivid array of wildflowers, putting on a remarkable show.
