Coolimba was a small fishing settlement that was made up of beach shacks. The number of shacks has been gradually diminishing with only a handful remaining when we last visited. The Carnamah Shire website states that the shacks have now all been removed.

The area was originally used as a summer retreat by farmers from further inland with the earliest shacks being built in the 1900s. From the 1950s the area was utilised more by lobster fishermen.

It is located opposite the Eneabba turn off on Indian Ocean Drive.

The bay is sheltered by wide shallow reefs and sea grass meadows.

Coolimba is one of three easy access points to the coast. The other two are at Gum Tree Bay about 12kms north and Illawong a further 22km north.

The low tidal range and usually low wave height make the area generally suitable for swimming and snorkeling.

Camping is not currently permitted at this site but it would be an ideal place for the shire to develop a camp ground similar to those located in other shires at places like Cliff Head and Sandy Cape.
