• Hi Klaye, staying overnight on the island is so relaxing and a whole different experience from a day trip, so definitely worth doing one day if you enjoyed the day trip!

    • Hi Jenny, we have our favourites too, at least when staying overnight on a boat! Nothing beats Parker Point (but Marjorie Bay is a close second 😉 ). Which bay is your favourite?

  1. Hi Bonny

    Our group (a couple with young kid, my girlfriend and I) will like to visit rottnest island beaches.

    Is it possible to walk the different beaches as we do not drive and cycle? Which beach will you suggest? I will also like to experience snorkeling but my friends will not be snorkeling. Is it possible to do the beach together or I have to take my individual day package? Any suggestions/recommendation?

    Any advise appreciate, thanks. We will be staying at quest harbour village.

    • Hi, Pinky’s beach and the basin are within easy walking distance of the main settlement area and are absolutely beautiful and great for swimming. There is a bus you can catch around the island that can drop you off at most other beaches, but it’s a little expensive. See my Rottnest snorkeling page for the best spots to snorkel, and if you catch the bus ask the driver which bays will be best for the conditions of the day. Don’t know what you mean about individual day packages, sorry.
