Great beach in the City

Beach in the city, spectacular sundowners great beach walks, good swimming ( just someties sharks), often a nice breeze. Really great, I guess even better than California.

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.

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
