Cottesloe Beach, Cottesloe

4.4
If you want to know how good the lifestyle of many of Perth's residents is, head to Cottesloe Beach. Only 15 minutes from the city center, this 1.5 km (1 mi) expanse of golden sand meets clear Indian Ocean water ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and surfing. Enjoy a picnic and watch a game of cricket on the grass of the nearby Cottesloe Esplanade. The town of Cottesloe has a slow pace, but also plenty of restaurants and cafes where you can sample fresh seafood specialties.

  • Just love Cottesloe! Stunning coastline! Also some nice cafes and restaurants.
  • I have been going to Cot Beach since a young kid and have many great memories of jumping off the pylon, body surfing and other fantastic scenery ... including the occasional white pointers.
  • Great beach....only thing is they only have two barbq spots are the dead end of the beach. This can be improved by adding more bbq spots for the public..
  • Excellent place to spend the morning during weekends. Fine sand and very clean.
  • Such a beautiful beach with white thin sand. It lacks a venue for healthy food though.
