Easy for swimming as it's usually pretty calm. Waves aren't overwhelming. Great family beach. Easily accessible off the train. Usually fairly quiet.

Best beach in Perth, need to go early in the morning to park. Always clean, sea can be quite rough but normally calm before 11am then the winds start

Very nice beach which is easily accessible from the North Fremantle station. Perfect for casual swimming. Lots of flies even at the beach. Be careful of the sunshine in summer as there is no shelter nearby so you must get yourself some towel or hat.

This is my favourite beach in the Perth/Fremantle area. Spacious, soft sand and shallow enough to bob around and cool off in the summer. Great for walking along or cycling the coastal path. Nearby bbq and new toilet facilities. The nearby restaurants, Shipping lanes and...More
