Plenty of glorious sand with grass areas behind if you prefer. Good swimming and not too crowded. Good cafes behind the beach.

This is a great beach. The colours in South Freo at sunset are amazing. It's an excellent safe, swimming beach; no high rollers. It attracts a much nicer, more down to earth crowd than Cottesloe does. Great dog beach too; check out the owners who put their dogs on boogie boards...

Ruoccos Pizza and South Beach fish and chips are very proximate if you want to get take away and watch the sunset. There's also a kiosk open during the day.

Easy to get there with the blue cat, it's a tiny beach, quiet and beautiful. Maybe not perfect if you don't like dogs!!

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..
