  • Nice water and shore. Have been here many times and would recommend it to tourists and families. Fairly safe as there are lots of patrols.
  • Probably the best beach in Western Australia. This place has it all. From a walk out onto the rocks, from the wonderful sand beneath your toes. Cottesloe Beach also has wonderful restraunts. The sunsets are one of the most amazing to view. Highly recommend!
