Lifestyle News: Perth’s Best Beaches

As the weather finally starts to heat up, read our tips for the best spots to enjoy a true Australian summer.

Cottesloe Beach

Cottesloe (pictured to the left) is one of the more well-known and popular of Perth’s beaches because it’s great for both swimming and walking along, and has a fun lively atmosphere with grassy terraces and picnic areas. There are multiple pubs and cafes over the road to choose from and even more as you head north towards North Cottesloe.

City Beach 

City Beach is a quick and easy drive from the CBD, straight down from Cambridge Street. It’s a family favourite and a great beach to catch up with friends. Sitting above the beach, you’ll find a big grassy area with a playground and BBQ facilities to enjoy.

Scarborough Beach 

Scarborough Beach is another one of Perth’s popular beaches. With larger waves than most Perth beaches, the surf can be pretty good there! Behind the beach there are grassy parks, a walking/cycling path and plenty of food and drink outlets.

Hillary’s Boat Harbour Beach and Sorrento Beach 

Hillary’s Boat Harbour Beach lies in the middle of Sorrento Quay (Hillarys Boat Harbour), and is surrounded by cafes along the boardwalk. After having a swim, you can wander through the markets, walk along the jetties and marvel over sea-life at Aqwa or if you prefer, slip down the waterslides at the Great Escape nearby. Hillary’s Boat Harbour Beach is a great spot to take the kids because it’s as calm as a swimming pool. Bigger kids may like the nearby Sorrento, which is great for catching the waves.
