Crystal blue water, low waves, good sheltered swimming for kids and grassed area for sunbathing and picnicking. Plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants close to the beach. Well maintained cycle/running track. Quite a lot of parking but can get crowded after mid morning. Patrolled.

Although at times a bit busy or windy, this beach is a must see in Perth. Come between 12pm and 3pm for the best sun and temperatures. Great amenities (hotels, shops, gelato, food) and a beautiful beach and ocean. Great views too. Shark patrolled!
