    sand and clm seas

    by

    The resort is really well equipped. They have a Jacuzzi and a nice restaurant that serves amazing steak. However the toilets are a sad story. I do not know about the rest, but the room I got had a horrible toilet. Algae-ish formations in the shower, bad shower head and they do not provide shampoos and soap. The beds were fine.

    Do take note its It was a LONG LONG ride from Perth. 900km! but I think the scenery and the dolphins were worth the butt aching long ride. so be confortable and have food with you!
    Frankly would have loved to have brought some insect repellent. There are tones of flies there, bush flies (do not worry they are “clean”. They are not your house flies that sit on feces and then mount of your food)

    Only accomodation available at Monkey Mia

    by

    This is both a motel/hotel and a campground. It's is actually the only available accomodation at Monkey Mia.

    Unique Quality: The campground had descent facilities, nothing out of the ordinary. They did have a small pool though, dont know if the campers/backpackers were allowed to use it but we did it anyway.

Shark Bay Marine Park

by pollon

"Monkey Mia"

25 km north-east of Dehnam there is the Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort by the Shark Bay Marine Park where a friendly pod of bottlenose dolphins visit the beach front of the resort each day.

One stretch of the shoreline is designated as the dolphin meeting place and in this area visitors are asked to stand no deeper than knee deep because this is the depth for the dolphins to come to you.
Rangers helps and mostly control the interaction with these anyway wild animals, we tourists can be really terrible!!!
The rangers provide you with fish with which you can feed the dolphins.
The first day I was so lucky to be choosen by rangers to offer them a fish and the second time with my brazen face I offered as the volunteer who helps them keeping the bucket with the fish for dolphins... it was simply great to have dolphins swimming between my legs and following me even if only for food reason...
But if you go very early in the morning and you enter the water risking a freezing if not really in the right season, they approach to you also without the protection of the rangers and not for food reason: this was for me unique feeling!

"about accomodation..."

The resort which is Monkey Mia itself offers facilities like complementary BBQ's, licensed restaurant,cafe, mini-mart, of course souvenirs, volleyball and basketball, snorkelling, hot tub (I would advise to try it but be prepared to queue because it's a small but sooooo pleasant. And it's not prerogative of the deluxe accomodation ;-))), swimming pool and tennis court. And here you can find deluxe beachfront villas, park homes, caravan park, camping, and accomodation for backpackers.

"crusing..."

In addition to dolphins, there are the mysterious dugongs which are at the origin of the mermaid myth.
They look like a walrus, are related to the elephant and are callled a sea-cows. They eat sea-grass and grow to 3 meters and 400 kg.
And the sailing catamaran, Shotover, with its cruises is a perfect way to spot them.

"dugongs..."

Because of their "shyness" they are difficult to approach and to take a picture at :-(((

"still cruising..."

If then you get a Sunset Cruise for free with the one to see dugongs, obviously you don't turn down and enjoy the sunset on the sea! It could be sitting near a very nice aged couple who in addition brought with them a bottle of good wine to better enjoy it!
