For shore south Fremantle

We spent some time walking the beach early in the morning after staying at a B&B nearby. Very peaceful spot and it was very interesting to see all the doggy owners with their charges at the pet friendly section of the beach , all seemed to be keeping the place very clean. Nice to walk around the park area where... More

There's a great path along the beach for a walk or bike ride (bikes can be hired up the road), the beach sand is clean and even on a colder day it was lovely to run around on the beach with the kids.

Not as popular as Cottesloe, City beach etc, but close to fremantle and can be alot quieter and not as touristy/busy. It's smaller a doesnt get huge crowds like some other beaches, so can actually be quite private on occasions. Close to cafes and also dog friendly.

One of Fremantles best beaches, very dog friendly, and a couple of nice cafes to take in a coffee and bite to eat by the seaside..

Great dog beach and place to swim. Close to cafe and shops [ about 5 min walk ] and if it;s not too hot and you fancy some boat spotting, a stroll along the harbor is great to catch the sea breeze and decide what type of boat you'd buy with a lotto wn

The dog beach was our favourite. So many pooches running around having fun, playing in the water. The water was beautiful and turquoise, a great beach for swimming and catching some son. If a dog beach is not your thing there is another beach just over the dune with a cafe at the back for some smoothies and iced coffee's... More
