Monkey Mia hotels
It’s an enchanting town with the funny name, and once you learn more about it, you’ll want to book one of our Monkey Mia hotels and see this quirky place for yourself. Located on Shark Bay, in Western Australia, Monkey Mia, (pronounced My-ah), sits on the edge of Shark Bay World Heritage Area. Bottlenose dolphins swim right up to human visitors! The town’s name comes from an old pearling boat that was once stranded here.
Where else will you have the opportunity to get up close and friendly with dolphins that initiate the contact? So, book your Monkey Mia accommodation and plan your dolphin encounter. You might see an elusive dugong, a marine mammal relative of the manatee. Dry land activities in this area are just as awesome, and you can take a camel ride, stargaze the inky skies from the beach, and take an Aboriginal cultural walk.
Visit during the annual Shark Bay Fishing Fiesta, and you can participate in the contest to catch a deep sea prize, or you can revel in the related festivities. It’s a popular event, so book your hotel early. HotelClub offers member benefits to make your stay even more enjoyable, so what are you waiting for?
The closest airport is Shark Bay Airport, which has limited domestic service. The next closest airport is found at Denham, approximately 21 kilometres away. Your hotel might have a shuttle service from and to the airport, and it’s a good idea to check in advance. Pearls, dolphins, sharks, pelicans, camels, dugongs! The list of unique and spectacular things to see and encounter in Monkey Mia is just too tempting for you to pass
