Photographer Adam Rikys finds the 'bluest water in Australia' in Coral Bay, WA

A photographer claims to have found the 'bluest water' in Australia - but you'll need to buckle in for a lengthy road trip if you want to swim in it.

Coral Bay, 1,123 kilometres north of Perth, WA, is described as a 'marine-lovers paradise' with clear turquoise water you'd expect to find off a tropical island such as Tahiti or the Maldives.

The bay, which is home to just 207 residents, gets its name from the spectacular coral gardens which lie just metres from the pristine white sandy beach.

The region has been enthralling travellers since it was featured in a TikTok video by Sydney content creator, Adam Rikys, who regularly spotlights off the beaten track destinations on social media.

'Everyone can stop looking, I've found the bluest water in Australia,' Mr Rikys told viewers.

The clip, which has been viewed almost 8,000 times since it was uploaded earlier this year, sparked stunned responses.

'Just beautiful,' one woman replied. 

Another added: 'I just looked up car transport options from Perth because of you.'

'My favourite place,' said a third, while a fourth wrote: 'Wow. Can't wait to visit.'

And Coral Bay is not the only Australian destination Mr Rikys has sent travellers racing to while the country's international border remains closed.

Last month, the photographer hailed a boatshed moored in the middle of the most scenic stretch of the Great Barrier Reef's the 'best in the world'.

The shed is the private Heart Island pontoon and helipad at Heart Reef, a spectacular composition of coral that has naturally formed into the shape of a heart in the iconic Whitsunday Islands off the coast of Queensland.

Passengers travel there on a 30-minute helicopter flight from the mainland and disembark to board a boat which takes them to explore the lagoon.

'Take me here oh my god,' one person wrote.

Another tagged her friend and said: 'Can we please go here?'
