Lovely for walking, bit surpising for swimming!

Gorgeous beach to walk along! The seaweed and sudden dips in the seabed close to shore can take you by surprise so paddling around is a bit tricky! Not many people there in June... read more

Gorgeous beach to walk along! The seaweed and sudden dips in the seabed close to shore can take you by surprise so paddling around is a bit tricky! Not many people there in June. We found the 3rd beach down best for swimming. Better than the designated beach with no dogs!

Great little cafe by the beach with great food and offering good value. Easy parking and a short walk to the beach. Shade abounds with trees and covers. Dog friendly cafe and connected to toilets and change rooms after a morning swim.

We went here nearly every day whilst we stayed in Freo. Most dog owners are friendly and responsible (i.e. not a lot a dog mines left to tread in!) And it is a nice place to be in the morning. Also there is a man who brings his coffee van to the beach some mornings, so you can get a... More

I love south beach!! Easy to arrive there with the free bus from Freo, the perfect place to have a bbq in the week end or to do jogging/work out. The grass area is a paradise for children, there is even a games area for them. Usually the beach is really clean. Go there for a sunset, is amazing!!

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.

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
