South Beach has beautiful white sand. It faces the Indian Ocean and it is close to the South Beach railway station on the Transperth network. South Beach is around 22kms (14 miles) south of Perth. Part of South Beach is also a dog beach, where your pooch can run free. It's just a hop, step and jump from central Fremantle.... More

South Beach is great for families. There is lovely grassed areas to sit in the shade and a playground for the kids. Close by is a little restaurant..

We often take our dog to this beach for a walk. In Summer you can swim here. There are two beaches, one dog friendly the other not. The grass area is great for picnics and you have a choice of two great cafes to eat from.

I remember South Beach as 'the' place to go for a good day out. There used to be fairground type attractions and the water safe for children's swimming. The attractions have disappeared and there is rarely family groups to be seen. I realize it is inevitable for things to change over time. However, currently the beach is just another swimming...

We came here to chill out a bit after a morning at the Fremantle Market. There's a fantastic playground here with shade sails over it to protect the kids from the harsh sun. We ended up staying for over an hour. Lots of families and it's a nice spot right next to the beach. Then we took a walk along... More

The beach is a clean beach that is safe. It is sheltered and close to restaurants and things for children. There is an excellent skate board/scooter park with easy and difficult slopes. a good day out

Beautiful long beach with a park from which you can oversee the ocean and the beautiful sunset. Sitting on the bench and looking around was a very pleasant experience.
