If you have a day spare it is easy to do both. Catch the Fremantle Line train and get off at Cottesloe Train Station. Take a very pleasant walk up Forrest St west and in about 15 minutes you get to the beach. Enjoy the beach-maybe do this in the morning and then have something to eat at one of the many cafes (I enjoy John St cafe but there are several). Walk back to the station and head on to Fremantle- or if you are keen walkers you can walk to Fremantle along the lovely ocean path-would take about 90 minutes.

There are buses but I prefer trains. You can see times on this web site:

Depending on when you are travelling you may wish to have a Plan B. At the moment we are getting into winter and it is rather chilly and can be raining, not exactly beach weather.

If it is a sunny day head to Cott early.

You could always do both.

It wouldn't cost that much to get a taxi from Cott around lunch time and head into Freo for lunch and exploring in the arvo.

Either that or do it the other way around and spend the day in Freo and head to Cott for sunset fish n chips on the lawn near the beach.

November weather can be fickle, but you should be lucky enough to get ok weather.
