Such a nice beach!

Cottesloe is a nice place to have a swim and enjoy the sunset with fish and chips! There are public toilets and showers and is easy to acces by public transport!

Without doubt one of "the must see" attractions if you are visiting Perth. The beach is clean and white with a very safe surf and lifeguards as well. The surrounding district, with walways and bike tracks, has some great restaurants as well.

We stayed in an Airbnb place just a block off the beach. It was a pretty ordinary apartment, but the location was great. An easy walk to Cottesloe Beach, which has a very nice park above it, and reasonable walks to several other nearby beaches. (The whole coastline is essentially one beach after another.)

Beautiful beach. I love going there for Sculpture by the Sea in March. Parking can be a pain (even when Sculptures is not on).

A great stretch of Main Street with cafes, boutiques & shops, multiple playground. The beach itself is crystal clear & well maintained. Definitely worth a stop off! You may find yourself dreaming of being wealthy & owning one of the pristine properties along the strip though $$ !!

Came to see Sculptures by the sea today. Was very hard to get parking, but we got a spot eventually. Lovely location and grounds. The toilets were clean but STANK. The cleaner was there doing her best, but I guess she can't help who comes in. Also a lot of confusion at the snack shop as to wear to line... More

I went to Cottesloe beach as an event was held, "Sculpture by the sea". It has been always a good location for me to visit, nice view and beach. It is very convenient for us to grab some food as there is a lot of restaurant not far from it. If you are a tourist and mostly spend your time... More
