If you want to experience a beautiful sunset sitting on the soft white sand that too within a short drive from Perth city then this is the Beach. The waves are good for surfers. You can walk along the beach and enjoy the walk on the wooden bridge on the beach.

One of my favourite beaches! The sand is powdery and there's plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the wind, waves and sun!

My partner and i headed for city beach around midday,soft powdery sand and warm wild waves! BBQ facilities weren't clean. we would recommend bringing some spray bleach and a scouring pad. BUT then that sunset was incredible!!!! all in all a good day out.

Lawn, shadey trees, parking , Clancy's Fish Pub and cafe... its pretty terrific without mentioning the family friendly beach of pristine white sand and gorgeous Indian Ocean water. ( wear footwear on your feet in summer as beach is wide and can get hot)

One of the many beautiful beaches along the west coast of Australia. Perfect to watch the sunset and we watched it on New Years eve. Ok to swim if the wind is right and the water was warm. More a body surfing beach than a swimming beach

Recommended to go here at the end of a business trip to see the sea and so gentle walking and relaxation. Well it was a very good morning out in the sun, but with a strongish on shore breeze taking the edge of the temperature. Still lots of people about enjoying the sun and the cafes around this and the... More

Lovely big beach not far from the City of Perth and just up the coastline from Cottesloe. It is very popular with good parking. My only concern when going into the sea around here is the fear of sharks. Just be on the lookout and do not go far out.
