  • Came here to relax/dry off after a dolphin swim and found it to be a wonderful beach. There's a good selection of cafes and restaurants across the road, as well as a children's playground and deck...

  • Great to be back after three long years. Always nice and clean and tidy. Safe for the grandchildren to play.

  • It was quite a nice and very long beach to stroll around. We started around the pier and walked through Churchill Park and back along the beach. The sand was quite fine so it was nice to walk along it. The views of the sea were interesting since it looked like a port area with plenty of large ships and cranes. The beach was quite clean so it was quite pleasant. It was surprising to see a yacht on shore and it looked like it had shipwrecked there. It was something you don't see every day. There were also a few newish looking developments on the edge of the beach to sit and sunbathe or play on the play area on the Boardwalk/Pier side of the beach.
  • Place is beautiful. You can eat with your family or group of friends here. You can grill, or have barbeque, can swim in the beach. Enjoyed the view it's very relaxing. Sunset is breathtaking.
  • Enjoy a relaxing walk along the beach, grass or eateries. Beautiful park space, easy access and variety of parking options available. Loved looking at the sculptures along the foreshore today!
  • It's my favourite beach in Perth, it's the best stretch of coastline in WA..
  • Beautiful water, a bit industrial, but still lovely to paddle
