Beach close to our Freo accommodation

Great to walk around on a winters day. Not sure how it would be on a hot summers day. Dog friendly, walking and cycling paths everywhere.

A bit busier due to dog walkers and kid facilities but still a very civilised and nice beach to stroll on or take a covering down and laze about watching the sea.

We take the dog for a walk on South Beach three or four times a week. It's usually very clean and the water is calm. Great for swimming in summer with fantastic sunsets. There is a long dog friendly stretch. We have to put the dog on a lead and walk along the path by the cafe to avoid the... More

Calm waters. Green grass under tall pines all the way down to the white sands and blue blue sea. Picnics, family fun, solitary walks. Love that South Beach

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
