Leave the car behind. Catch a bus. Bring a blanket. Take a picnic lunch or grab some fish and chips. Lovely walks on beach and on beach front. Great spot to blow away the cobwebs and truly relax. But if you bring your car —...More

One of the most beautiful beach in Perth, lots of cafes and sitting area. Fine sand, clear sea water. Great for swimming. Play ground and picnic area. Wonderful seaside walking path. Don't miss the sunset at the beach, it is truly amazing!

The recent storms have taken their toll on the actual beach, lots of sea weed covering the sands abd very black looking water. Temporary I am sure. The rest of Cotter sloe remains as beautiful as ever.

A bit of a hike from public transport, but apparently the best beach in Australia. I can't comment, but I thought it was quite nice nonetheless.

There are no organised activities, just personal beach walking, night photography of the exhibitions if you are into it or eating dinner at a restaurant nearby

Sadly not for hire. If you go to the main Cottesloe beach there is plenty of shade on the terraces of lawn south of Indiana building.

It's around a mile from the Beach, so if you like Walking fine, otherwise if it was me I would choose a location by Cottesloe Beach which is superb
