Discovering the Best Beaches in Perth – Sun-kissed Wonders Down Under
Be it to soak up the sun, swim in the ocean, surf the waves or splash along the shore, Perth has a beach that’s right for you! Here are some of the top picks.
In the northern suburbs of Perth, you will find the City Beach which is ideal for families and some bodysurfing too. Apart from sunbathing and frolicking on the shore, this beach also has grass parklands and spots for BBQs ideal to enjoy great food and company as the sun begins to set.

One of the most popular family beaches, Cottesloe Beach offers a laid-back coastal escape in Perth. Hotels in the CBD are within easy reach of this idyllic shoreline which offers excellent conditions for swimming, sunbathing and catching some magical sunsets while savouring yummy fish and chips.
Equally well-known is Scarborough Beach which features soft white sand and azure waters which attracts a hip and happening crowd! Easy to access from city centre properties such as Pan Pacific Perth, this picturesque shoreline is also home to cafes, shops, surf shops and more which add to its charm.
Located in Fremantle, Port Beach is a scenic coastal haven perfect for swimming and activities like stand-up paddleboarding. The relatively calm waters make it ideal for families too, while it also offers an excellent stretch of shore for jogging or a leisurely beach walk.
