Geographe Bay, Western Australia, Australia

The scenic coastline of Geographe Bay offers clean white-sand beaches alternating with boulder-strewn bays and headlands of orangey-red granititic gneiss. The water is almost always calm and waveless, sparkling crystal clear above a white sandy seafloor. 

The bay is sheltered by the landmass of the Cape from the Indian Ocean’s south-westerly swells, so most if its beaches are nearly always calm with only small waves – in complete contrast to the wild, surf-pummelled Margaret River coastline over on the western side of the Cape.
