Beach is not too far from Perth city (less than 30 mins drive), and you can enjoy your strolls, jogs and cycling here, just like the locals. The benches, painted blue and white, lie along the pathways, still looking the same as what I saw...More

I was there in fall, but the sand, water, and dunes was still calling visitors. There were people still swimming. The sand is soft and the water is clear. I liked that there were grassy areas to sit on and some shade under the trees.

There are no organised activities, just personal beach walking, night photography of the exhibitions if you are into it or eating dinner at a restaurant nearby
