Western Australia has to have some of Australia’s best beaches and we are lucky enough that Perth is home to some of these spectacular beaches. There are so many things to do in Perth with our beaches being a highlight. When visiting Perth we suggest that you step foot on these 4 beaches.
Cottesloe is a popular beach located only 15 minutes from Perth. The water is protected by a rock wall so you don’t get the large waves you can get at other beaches. With clear water, white sand and a wide grassy area shaded by Norfolk Pines it is easy to see why it is a favourite with locals. Picnic on the grass or eat at one of the many restaurants, cafes and bars along Marine Parade.
