The City Beach in Perth is the smaller of the three main beaches that most travellers enjoy visiting. Here, you'll often find more locals wanting to enjoy a quieter afternoon. It also lacks the facilities that Cottesloe and Scarborough Beaches have. There are no restaurants here outside of one cafe.

I'm not a beach person but while living in Perth, I didn't mind going to this beach. It has nice grassy and tree areas right on the beach for those like me who hate the sand.

This beach is more suitable for the quick visit before the "Freo Doctor" has arrived, plenty of sand and grassed areas so as not to be too crowded. Just go and enjoy one of the alternative best beaches.

Don't go on a Sunday by bus as the service is awful. What new arrivals to Perth might not realise is that almost the entire coast is beautiful white sand, with clear blue water.

I enjoyed city beach because I can surf around with the waves. The sands are very fine and nice to walk and run on it

There are very few cities in the world who can boast a surf beach right on its doorstep. Perth has City Beach. The golden sand stretches to rolling waves and crisp fresh air straight off the ocean, unpolluted by human endeavour. Sit in the quirky little cafe, drink coffee and contemplate life.
