“Makes you appreciate living in Australia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This place is ACE. Clean, good facilities, beautiful location with beautiful views. Perfect for BBQ with friends or family. Cafe nearby is good, I have only had a hot chocolate there, but was very comfortable.

“View with no boundaries”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Wide open ocean with no islands or any obstructions in sight. Relatively calm ocean. Quite a number of locals spending their lunch break.

“So much white sand and no parking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Parking can be a pain here sometimes, especially in the afternoons on the weekends. There are toilets and changerooms nearby along with showers, dont expect any star ratings there, they are basic as basic can be. Ensure you leave valuables in the car boot away from prying eyes. Local thieves are always lurking. waves are more gentle towards the rock jetty and more dumper type in the middle of the bay. Or you can enjoy a nice walk along this beach either south to trig beach or north to cotteslo beach

“Great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I'm a Perth resident and City Beach and Scarborough are wonderful beaches! Perth is a pretty windy place but if you want the best possible weather get to the beach about 9 or 10am on a hot day! Thats when its dead calm, and when most locals will hit the beach! Also if your up this way, check out Mullaloo Beach. Quite far north but its the best one in town! And usually the quietest, with only locals!
PS. Use sunscreen, if your european the Australian sun will fry you!
