Shark Bay World Heritage Site is home to many aquatic animals. For example, there are many species such as dolphins, dugongs, rays, turtles and 17 mammals such as humpback whales, 98 reptiles, amphibians, over 230 species of birds.
And Monkey Mia at the marine park – Australia’s largest coast when more than 1,500km long is part of Shark Bay. What attracts a large number of Australian tourists visiting Monkey Mia is the bottlenose dolphin living near the shore for decades.
Wild bottlenose dolphins often swim near the edge to interact with humans up to three times a day. Especially in the early morning, around the time they are fed by volunteers.
Visitors can stand at the edge of the water and feed the dolphins under staff supervision, but touching or swimming with them is prohibited. It is estimated that between four and seven dolphins are confident enough to visit each day for food, others only occasionally. However, on cruises sightseeing around the bay, you can easily catch them waving the sea.
Shell beach is also known as a shell beach because the coast is completely covered with shells with a thickness of up to 10m. Shell beach is one of only two beaches in the world where shells replace sand. That’s like a beautiful picture given by nature. Billions of seashells formed from the seabed over millions of years stretching all over the Shell coast.
Coming to Shell beach on a bright golden day, watching each wave dancing offshore amidst the unique scenery is an interesting experience when traveling Australia.
