This remains one of the best beaches to visit. It has fabulous views of the ocean and entry to the Fremantle Port, where you can watch the ships go in and out. Good beach for swimming and for the whole family, good areas for walking and jogging. Even on bad days, the view from the car park is great, so... More

This is the same as Leighton and the best beach to visit with family as the water is never too rough with big dumpers. The parking is close to the beach too

I love this beach. The fact that there are all these massive containers and ships so close and you can see the ships coming in makes it more fun! (I'm a bit of ship spotter😆) The water is the most amazing turquoise colour and you can a have a really good walk up to Mosman after being blobby and go... More

We love getting up really early on a hot summer's day, parking in the car park and walking from Port Beach to Leighton (and watching the antics of the dogs on the dog beach!!) then walking back to Port, having a dip in the pristine water and heading off for a coffee or breaky. A beautiful beautiful beach!

Although at times being a little too windy some mid afternoons, this is a stunning beach close to excellent amenities/cafes/restaurants. Excellent for children, particularly early morning and later in the afternoon and a favourite for taking those long beach walks on the fabulous white sands. With a vista overlooking Gage Roads shipping lane, there is always some far off shipping... More

Its a beach life! Miles of sandy white beaches easing into the warm, flat ocean. Away from the hustle and bustle of busy Cottesloe beach up the road, it is much quieter and easy to access. The port is just behind you and if you look to your left you will see the cranes and containers but you look out... More

Port beach was very convenient for us on our holiday to Fremantle, but the one thing I would advise is that you go early, as the winds pick up in the early afternoon.

Perth sunsets are some of the best in the world and Port Beach is a great spot to view it from. Grab some fish and chips and head down early evening. Can be quite windy so beware of that however, mostly the weather is fine.

As is suggested by the name, this beach is very close to the port of Fremantle and you can actually see the cranes etc from the beach. Apart from that it's a fairly nice beach and doesn't seem to get too busy on weekdays.
