Accessible for wheelchairs or pushchairs, somewhere where you can relax and watch over the beach area or lay on the beach and swim, the Surf Life Savers are on hand, although at times... More

City Beach is a nice place to visit. Great sand - pretty clean and neat. Good restaurants nearby and good parking possibilities. Not much to complain about if the weather is good.

Visited part of the beach where dogs were allowed (we didn't have our dog with us). Saw copious amounts of dog turds on the beach itself but also had to dodge them on the sand path to the beach. Heaps of signs asking people to pick up their dogs mess but also bags supplied along with bins to put it... More

City beach has undergone extensive renovations recently and has lovely grass areas, playgrounds, restaurants and a massive beach. There are generally waves and most of the time is quite windy in the afternoon. There are also lights for nighttime activities.

WE love this beach as it usually has some kind of waves, great to catch one in. It has surf life savers and flags to swim between and does some times have weed but mostly clear beautiful water. Great clear white sand.

Nice views of the Indian Ocean. Park beaches to sit , one can fish, swim or eat at one of the few restaurants. Peaceful suburb area not far from Scarborough.

This is an ideal location for a swim or a fish. It provides lots of options for families to do an array of activities. The beach is great with a large grassed area for outdoor to picnic or to enjoy the outdoors. This area has recently been developed and now have some new restaurants available albeit a but pricey. Nevertheless... More

Just north of the CBD, City Beach is a beautiful expanse of white sand and never-ending ocean view, wonderful for sunsets. Along the beach there are restaurants for all pockets and facilities for swimmers. A good beach if you like to avoid crowds.
