There wasn't too much happening here on a weekday in mid Nov. The beach is nice enough although the sand colour isn't quite white and the views of Fremantle Port are a bit off putting. I prefer Cottesloe Beach.

Sand lovely and warm, sun setting over the water, the gentle gushing of waves braking upon the shore line? Where better to enjoy a nice swim, or Fish & Chips by the sea. Or hire a bike and ride along the bike tracks. A divine place to visit!

It is a wide beach , most of the time and has a great beach cafe near toilet facilities. Another more up market cafe is also overlooking the beach and in the park area... More

Nice park with barbecues and plenty of grass to sit on. Small lay park for the children. Lovely beach for dog walking.

It was cold, wet & very windy on the day we went to look at the beach. However I imagine that on a fine day, it would be perfect. The white sand matches any of the lovely beaches around Australia and having the grassy park adjoining the beach is a bonus. There is also a nice cafe on the beachfront.

The water and beach is complimented by the grassed areas with quite a bit of shade. Lovely for a short visit to swim and walk or for a family gathering to stay longer maybe a barbecue or picnic. A legendary meeting place for all ages.

Unlike any place I've been before. Fremantle/Perth is one of my favorite places in the world. The beaches are amazing. (March 2001)

You should come here just to enjoy the sea view! Not crowded and just sit back n relax, buy some food n drinks and we just enjoy the seagulls!
