Perth is as beautiful as a photo in a iconic Cottesloe Beach. This place is one of the most popular places in the city where you can swim, snorkel, surf and drink a glass of wine, a beer, or relaxed dinner in ocean sunsets.
Cott’ can be reached from Perth with car, bus or train, as it is known affectionately. From the town, hop on the Transperth regular bus or take the Fremantle train and take a pleasant 600 metre walk from the Cottesloe beach.
Perth’s 19 sensational white sand beaches make it a favourite because they are charming. Smooth terraced lawns with untouched sands, shady Norfolk Pines, are perfect for a relaxing afternoon or a family day.
A vibrant boulevard of shops, cafes and bars provides a breakfast, lunch, dinner, sunset and a fun Sunday session along the beach.
Crystal clear waters and constant swell are a regular haven for swimmers, car-boarders and surfers, while snorkellers are invited to hit the water by the steep rocks and reefs.
