Was here with some family because they told me this is one of the best beaches in Freo. Great place and not that busy, excellent for families or small groups!

This beach is just minutes from Fremantle town centre on the city centre free bus service, I visited twice as it is so easily accessible. The beach is great to lie on or you can find a shady spot on the surrounding grass area The cafe is slightly expensive but drinks are reasonable, if you're having a beach day a... More

This is our local beach and we just love it. Let your kids swim out and jump off the platoon, take a stroll up to the nearby cafes and shops and if you've worked up an appetite, do yourself a favour and stroll over to Run Amok Hotdogs around the corner (Veg dogs available).

A nice grassy area with trees to chill under looking out over the Indian ocean. Or walk down the rock path and watch people meditating at sunset. Lovely beach with beautiful trees and an amazing view

We ventured out to Coogy Beach {not overly far from South beach} and a short drive from Hamilton Hill each day. The beach is clean, with lovely white sand and there is a newly installed shark net. Aparently, no sharks in this area, but being in the water within the netted area somehow feels so much more comfortable and relaxing.... More

Maybe by Oz standards it is nothing special but for a northern hemisphere man - it is wonderful. Came here earlier in year with family and this time on my tod (business). Caught the free CAT bus down, 45 mins on the beach, a quick dunk in the water - and the free bus back up. All nice and easy.... More

The beach itself is over rated and the area over crowded over a weekend It is very hard to get parking down there and the car park is very badly laid out (dead end with no provision for traffic flow through) What a pity the railway line (which dominates the Esplanade from Freo centre out to the south) is not...

South beach is in our opinion one of the best beaches in and around Perth. The Ocean seems more peaceful here than at other beaches with not a big swell most times we have visited, has a big grass area with lots of shade and the sand is white, nice beach to spend a few hours...

South Beach was nothing like what I thought it was going to be like. It's very small and the sand looks like it's been coloured white. The only good thing the bus was free to get there.
