David Muirhead and I have done some snorkelling at Myponga Beach recently. One of these trips involved us snorkelling in a large rock pool there whilst there were swells breaking outside the rock pool. It was interesting enough to maintain our interest for quite a while.

We also enjoyed the rock-hopping necessary to reach the rock pool and even some rock hopping around it.
More recently, we launched my tandem kayak from the beach by the creek there. We paddled northwards past several rocks until we found an area protected by some rocks.

David snorkelled in the area whilst I kept watch. I was envious of David because I couldn’t snorkel since I was recovering from some surgery on a skin cancer on my nose at the time.

David saw a few fish during his snorkel dive, including this school of Western Striped Grunter (a.k.a. Trumpeter): –

We enjoyed our time spent in the area before paddling our kayak back to the beach. Myponga Beach is situated on the shores of Coweelunga Bay. Here are two aerial photos of the area (found in the Reader’s Digest “Guide to the Australian Coast”: –

We hope to return back to Myponga Beach again soon, maybe even for a boat dive there.
