    Beautiful quiet beach south of Fremantle, easy to access on the free CAT bus. The sand isn't as white as the northern beaches and there are no waves for surfing but this makes is great for a swim. There's a couple of cafes, free BBQ's and plenty of grass to sit on though it can get very busy on the weekends over summer.
