“not top of my list..”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

The beaches in general along the west coast and Perth are amazing. This isn't one of the nicest beaches I've been to.. It's a bit dirtier than the others as there are boats around. It's a lot more sheltered than the others though which is good as it gets very windy here.
But if you have the time and transport, Cottesloe, Leighton, Scarborough etc. are far nicer.
Also, another negative about South Beach is probably the company... Every time I've been there there seems to be a "group" loitering around the grassy area beside the cafe and they always start some kind of fight. The police are called etc. It's not a nice thing to see when you just want a beach day. Would put me off going there by myself, or using the toilets! But I guess that's maybe because its a culture shock for me as I'm not from here. I still haven't really gotten used to the troubles of the west coast. Bit of a shame.. But if you're living in Fremantle, it's a good perk to have a beach so nearby..

“South Fremantle is an interesting underrated area”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

You can go for a long walk down a very interesting street to get to South Beach. Lots of individual little shops on the way.
