“less crowded more private beach with mega waves!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is a pretty typical Perth beach however it is not as crowded as most of the others as it does not have many places such as cafes or stores nearby.

I have not been to the cafe nearby but apparently it is quite pricey as it is the only one nearby.

The waves were huge on the day we went - a little scary but between the flags they were much better.

The water and the sand is extremely clean!

This beach is definitely a nice change from the concrete jungle of Scarborough.

“Fun beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Had a great day out swimming and jumping into the waves. In the afternoon lots of wind surfers come out and pay around. Great swimming beach and seems busy and quite popular.

“Morning walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Best time to walk the beach is before 8am.still cool and the sand is not hot and you can walk without shoes and catch the waves. You can finish off with a breakfast in the cafe and if you go even earlier you will catch a good sunrise!

“Great beach just a few kms from the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

One of Perth's best beaches and just a few kms from the city centre. Not suitable for surfing, but some good bodyboarding - at times though the waves can knock you around a bit if you're just looking somewhere to swim. If so, head to Leighton Beach.
