Mauritius Beach

Mauritius Beach - Australia

Situated very near the northernmost point of the Exmouth Peninsula, Mauritius Beach is easily reached by road. At its northern end lies the Jurabi Turtle Centre and Ningaloo Lighthouse Holiday Park, while at its southern end it runs continuously into Jims Beach.

Approximately 400 metres long by 50 metres wide at low tide, Mauritius Beach was declared a clothing optional beach in 1999 by the local council, although there are no signs demarking clothing-required and clothing-optional sections.

The sand is typical of what you find on Australia’s Indian Ocean coastline, being white and of a medium grade. It slopes relatively gently to their warm turquoise waters, which are generally safe for swimmers. However, there are some underwater rocks in the shallows at low tide, as well as at either end of the beach.

Just offshore there is a reef, protected by a marine park it is popular with hobby snorkelers. Turtles nest on parts of the beach at night between October and April, with hatchings taking place approximately two months later.

Beach fishing is permitted on Mauritius Beach, named after a ship of the Dutch East Indies Company which landed near here in 1618.
