Life is sweet in Coral Bay; its relaxed atmosphere and easygoing locals will surely charm anyone who stays here and you might find yourself staying longer than you originally planned!
Coral Bay hostels range from dormitory accommodation to private rooms, resorts, RV parking grounds, and even tent sites. Most Coral Bay hostels and accommodation are very close to the beautiful beachfront, usually within a couple of minutes' walk and close to all amenities such as supermarkets, tourist information, restaurants, pubs, and cafes. Most of the Coral Bay hostels and accommodation offer kitchen facilities, great outdoor areas (some with barbecues), and can help with onward travel and tours in the area, such as boat trips for fishing, snorkeling, and whale shark watching.
The perfect white sandy beaches stretching from the centre of Coral Bay along the coast are pristine and unspoilt and full of a spectacular array of marine life. You don't have to go far to see some beautiful sea life -- the fish and other creatures come right up to the shoreline to feed on the sea grass all along the beachfront, so you don't even need to go scuba diving or snorkeling to get a glimpse of some natural beauty!
Kayaks, snorkeling, diving, and other water sports gear can be rented for reasonable prices in Coral Bay or you can easily spend days on end just sunbathing on the perfect beaches and enjoying the amazing weather for which Western Australia is so renowned.
Whatever your budget, Coral Bay hostels have accommodation options for you and a good selection of places to eat -- from delicious bakeries to cafes offering up great breakfast lunch and dinners and the local pubs offering dinner specials and great atmosphere to enjoy a good meal.
