Monkey Mia is basically a resort, caravan park & camping ground by the beach. It has a couple of restaurants, a small supermarket, several tour shops, an information centre & a few other other facilities.
It is really self-contained in that it has everything you need for a beach-side holiday. The town of Denham is about 30 kms away. The main attraction is the tame dolphins which come in to be fed. They come in every day, but at random times. There are beautiful beaches to swim in or sun bake on if the weather is nice & the water is warm. We were there in July & it was cold at night & too cold to swim
Monkey Mia is an amazing place to visit. The Dolphins, Dugong and other sea life are so easy to view in this exceptionally unique environment.
The beach is beautiful and weather it is family activities, relaxing on the beach, great dining or wildlife and watersports they really are exceptional in all. Highly recommended although a little of an effort to get there. The isolation is probably what makes it so special.
Spent more time in MOnkey mia resort it is a long drive from perth and you require more time to relax and enjoy the location
