It was a bit too chilly for me to swim, but this is a fantastic place to go for a walk, any day ! Just missed the Sculpture competition so will time my trip better next time. Going to the beach is always a good time

Stopped here for lunch with an interstate visitor who wanted to see Cottesloe beach. We sat outside at the front overlooking the beach which was lovely. I had the cheeseburger which was like a gourmet big Mac, it was amazing. The service was fast too. My only minor criticism I guess is that it would've been good if the tables... More

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.

Never been before, it's an annual event and wow it's amazing. Unusual and thought provoking art work all along the beach itself and the promenade. Defeinety a must do for locals and visitors alike.

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.) Cottesloe beach has a "groyne" (a... More

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 $$ !!
