Accommodation In Coral Bay

When it comes to where to stay for your next trip, accommodation plays a big part in how enjoyable your holiday will be. Below I have covered the accommodation options in Coral Bay and surrounds. Coral Bay is a small town and there isn’t a lot of options to choose from.

We have stayed in both caravan parks in Coral Bay. It was packed out when we were there and I have to be honest, I felt like we were jammed in like sardines. Unfortunately if you want to stay in the town centre of Coral Bay then the only options available are the caravan parks, resorts and backpackers. There are no free/low cost camps within a 10km radius. 


For accommodation in Coral Bay- Unfortunately like I mentioned earlier there are no campgrounds in Coral Bay. This certainly does suck if you have all that you need to live towing behind you or if you just want a spot to pull up for the night. There is definitely a market for this. 

But in saying that there are other options if you don’t want to pay the prices of a caravan park or if you don’t like listening to the neighbours TV at night. 

The closest campgrounds in the area are located about 10 kil

All of these campgrounds are located along the coast of the Cape Range National Park, just off Yardie Creek Road. This is on the other side of town and most have no internet reception, no water and no electricity. They offer accommodation for tents, camper vans and caravans. None of these locations offer fresh water and only some offer toilets and showers.

Caravan Parks

Peoples Park Caravan Park 

Peoples Park is in the centre of Coral Bay Western Australia. This caravan park is right across the road to the beach. The caravan park offers large sites for RV’s, caravans and limited tenting options. Here in Coral Bay there is limited water. If you have the option then fill your caravan tanks BEFORE arriving in Coral Bay. The caravan park offers limited facilities.

Bullara Station Stay

This is an authentic outback station stay and we totally recommend it. It is one of our favorite places to stay in the West Coast of Australia. We were lucky enough to be there for the last muster of the year, so we had the helicopter land just 100 meters from our caravan 4-5 times a day. The children visited the rounded up cows and bulls just behind our van. This place had everything from outdoor artesian showers to 5.00pm fire and damper and this only tips the ice berg of what is there!!! Keep in ind this is a 40 minute drive to Coral Bay town.

Ningaloo Bayview Caravan Park.

If you are looking for a caravan park with all the facilities for kids then this is your go-to place. Bayview has a jumping pillow, large playground, heaps of grass and a big swimming pool with sunbeds. It is like a mini oasis. We loved our stay here and so did the kids! We were here during the busy season so yes we were bumper to bumper with the neighbours but not often were we at the van. We spent many days at the beach, exploring Coral Bay and lazing around the pool. 


Chalets and Cabins are nice when you have a large group of people coming down. It gives everyone enough space to spread out and relax. Coral Bay is a very small place. With the town having one street with everything on it. There is one road in and one road out. Coral Bay is a hotspot for tourists so accommodation prices skyrocket. Gathering a group of family or friends is sometimes a way to keep the cost of accommodation down.

There are no hotels or motels in Coral Bay. The closest hotels are in Exmouth which is a 1 hour and 40 minute drive. See here for more accommodation in Exmouth.


If you are wanting something a little more personal and some space alone I would recommend Airbnb. Finding a whole house to rent out for the week with your family can often be cheaper than booking into a resort.
