Being the first time we had visited Fremantle, we thought that a stroll along the beach would be a good idea. Being such a hot day in January, the cool sea breezes were very welcome. Large groups were enjoying themselves, but that did not deter us in the slightest. There was still plenty of room for everybody. We both thought... More

A busy hang out spot near a park and a grassy area. There are some food spots near by making it the perfect area to spend the day.

Just at the southern end of Fremantle (Free CAT bus from the train station). The beach has the added advantage of having a long lawned area besides it with plenty of shade amongst mature trees and tall shrubs. The cafe is good for honest food. There is a children's play area (pirate ship. The Saturday summer hot food market is... More

Within walking distance to free shuttle bus to Fremantle train station. Very nice beach, white sand, turquoise water, calm water. We enjoyed the playground as well as relaxing under the shade of the trees.

We spent the afternoon there on Monday and didn't want to leave. It's such a dreamy little beach and so clean! It's heaven. Lovely white, soft sands and crystal clear sea water that was nice and cool and refreshing. The beach was deserted until about 5pm when families seemed to be coming down after school and work. With the free... More

While on holiday to Perth went to the Beach with my family. You are so lucky to have such a super facility and wonderful weather. We had a great day out and will return again.

Dogs are allowed further down the beach and there are good changing rooms and toilet facilities close by. Also across the road is Run Amuk hotdogs which are the... More

This beach is lovely to walk along. It's got exquisite white sands, and a good place to hang out with the locals. Close to parking and cafe's. A great place to go.
