“Lovely sheltered rock pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

A northern suburbs favourite. Good size for swimming laps and rock pools with fish for snorkelling. Get. Good day with off shore winds for best visibility though.

“Great walk and swim”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The water is pretty still all year round and safe for low to non swimmers. Great for a walk as pathway from Hillary's to Trigg Beach.

“A great spot for families with young children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

There are very few beaches in Perth suitable for small children in all weather, because most of the beaches are surfing beaches, often with large waves, and in fact they can be dangerous for people who are not aware of rips etc. Mettam's pool is not a pool as such, but a beach sheltered by rocks and reefs, that make the water calm and pool like.
There are also little bays and rocks to explore, and this was a favourite of our family when the children were young.
It's also a nice spot for other people who don't like the waves, or non-swimmers. And not too far from the city.
Parking can be a bit difficult in the summer, and you may have to walk from one of the side streets.

Excellent snorkelling spot, good beach and swimming if you don't want to snorkel. Indian Ocean is so clear.
