On the odd day when it is warm, sunny and there is no wind City Beach is a great beach spot. Some days it can get quite rough and unpleasant but mostly it is a great beach for bodyboarding, swimming or just catching up with family and friends. Occasionally there is a sand bar which makes the water especially calm.... More

I enjoy meeting up with friends and kids here. Also good for watching kitesurfing, and kite flying. Really soothing to have a picnic on the lawn, with a view of the ocean.

My wife and I have have spent numerous holidays visiting friends in Perth. City Beach, although the sea can be rough, is nevertheless one of our favourites swimming beaches. Lovely flat beach for long walks and life savers for safety. The restaurants nearby offer delicious breakfast and lunch options too.

Some of our best memories of Australia were made at City Beach! What fun jumping and diving though the waves, especially on Christmas morning! The waves are rough for sure but stay within the lifeguards and you will feel safe! They are currently building more restuarants and services which will enhance in further! If you want fun, go to city... More

WA people are so lucky to have such great beaches, always with lifeguards during the warmer months, good change facilities and lovely clean sea water with beautiful sand beaches. This beach is very close to Perth, good for tourists.

A great idea in the middle of the city - water features for the children and deckchairs for the adults. A great idea for a hot day in the city & Mum can shop too as it is right beside main shopping precinct.

This is one of those beachese where u can take the little ones as the waves are not too daunting and there is a decent open play area for children and a large ground for picnic set ups. Toilets readily available and shops close by if u want to nip in. great place for kite flying if u are into... More

Beautiful sandy beach, crashing waves, masses of kite surfers to watch. We hired bikes and cycled around Cottesloe- really pleasant way to spend the afternoon - stopping off at cafes along the way.

This is a good place to visit as it is not over run by tourists. There is a pub and cafe located at the beach with a new surf club under construction. Plenty of parking if you drive or take the bus from the city to the beach and enjoy your day in the sun.
