This well looked after beach has a fantasic play area for children. Barbeques are provided and the area is clean and neat- all you need is the weather ( which Perth provides constantly)

OK, so it's close to the city centre but there are better and safer beaches in my experience. The water is never flat so you would not take your kids there. The waves do not break gently but suddenly so it's no good for body surfing. Despite this it's always packed with people. Why? I've got no idea. Scarborough Beach... More

I lived with my hostfamily during 1 month in City Beach. I recommend due to the calm place and close to the beach. It's a bit far from downtown, but it's Worth! I liked and I hope be back one day.

A wonderful beach, pretty close to the City, but a great example of our white sands, and blue sky. The Restaurants are good, well priced and great food - and the whole area is about to be revamped.

Lovely place to visit. Cafés and BBQ's, parks and parking. Lovely beach. Even the lifeguards to keep you safe. Worth a visit.

Easy to get to, easy to park, clean clear water. Good amenties. As it was a weekday it was uncrowded and quit relaxing but it is probably busy on weekends.

Great beach with plenty of space so it never seems too crowded. Good facilities and plenty of parking.

Gorgeous stretch of coastline with blue water stretching out as far as you can see. The beach looked busy but was so long that you could easily find a spot on your own if you wanted to.

We used City Beach a couple of times while we were in WA. This is a lovely sandy beach which was relatively empty when we visited. The beach shelves nicely into the sea which we liked as it made swimming a real pleasure., Plenty of free car parking. Lovely spot.
