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

Very nice beach, lovely grassy area and cafe. I always enjoy the floating deck. It's fun to jump off of!

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

Go there if you need a dose of furry friends around you! :) Owners are normally super friendly as well and will be happy for your to have a path! ahaha You can bring your picnic and have a BBQ just behind as well! There is a sign for no dogs there....Though you will see it doesn't stop people :)... More

So great to see a sunset, haven't seen one over the ocean since Fiji. Nice beach, good facilities and shops not too far to walk too.
