So fortunate to have this as our local beach. For swimming, best to visit when winds are from the east as you will have a much more relaxing time!

Great place to come and relax, beautiful blue wates to swim in, cycle and walkways. Great restaurants and a couple of great pubs where you can share a cold drink.

Now that City Beach has been redeveloped. It is a relaxing and beautiful place to visit. Three top class restaurants, bicycle paths, long footpaths, dog friendly, and not least, the glorious beach and ocean views. This location is good for the soul.

A truly wonderful beach with heaps of parking so access is good. It’s had massive upgrades in recent years with a few new restaurants all with great views of the ocean. A must visit when in Perth

Took my daughter here whilst in Perth on a recent trip. It was a little cold and windy, but not as bad as the previous day when we visited Cottesloe beach. There were a few surfers but otherwise the beach was pretty much deserted. Nice...More

Hi if you take an Uber taxi it takes 19 minutes or if you take the number 82 bus from the Perth Busport it takes 38 minutes. It is approx 11.0 km distance from Murray St to City Beach Hoping this helps :)
