Simply a stunning beach, there a several places along the way to get food and drink, if you're in Fremantle well worth the visit.

Follow the cycle/walk track south towards Coogee - it is a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours - Much more peaceful that Cottesloe - park up and walk down to the beach to see CY O'Connors memorial - strategically placed in the water.

From Fremantle the CAT bus will drop you at the beach. Very clean and a great place to swim and surf. Very popular.

Difficult to add more to the title than that. Compared to European beaches it is completely stunning - compared to other Australian beaches it is up to the normal high quality. Went a few times with the kids and great fun. Once the wind was really blowing and whilst it made the waves exceptionally exciting - keeping possession of towels... More

This is the best beach in the Fremantle area, and the CAT bus takes you down here free of charge from Fremantle. Perth has plenty of beaches though, so if you are north of the river there is no need to come down to this one.

Every time I fly back to Perth, my body itches to swim at South Beach. The water is clear, the beach is clean and cosy, and it's not very crowded. It's a secret paradise :)

Nice beach, access bit difficult for elderly. Dogs love it and all seemed friendly. Nice play area for children, plenty of shade and a nice cafe foe a snack or coffee , plus more of a restaurant if you want more of a meal. Something for everyone.....

This is a great beach to take the family . It took us 40mins to travel as I live north of the river, but worth the trip. Nice lawned area with bbqs and playground for the kids. The beach is sheltered inbetween two groins so not too many waves for the kids. If you have older children who can swim... More
