I'm not a beach person but while living in Perth, I didn't mind going to this beach. It has nice grassy and tree areas right on the beach for those like me who hate the sand. The water was always a good temp and clear. They have grills available and restaurants up and down the boulevard. It's a great place... More

This beach is more suitable for the quick visit before the "Freo Doctor" has arrived, plenty of sand and grassed areas so as not to be too crowded. Just go and enjoy one of the alternative best beaches.

Don't go on a Sunday by bus as the service is awful. What new arrivals to Perth might not realise is that almost the entire coast is beautiful white sand, with clear blue water.

I enjoyed city beach because I can surf around with the waves. The sands are very fine and nice to walk and run on it

Like nearly all of Perth's beaches, it has nice sand and waves. Also a fantastic foot path that links them together if you are up for a long run.

There are very few cities in the world who can boast a surf beach right on its doorstep. Perth has City Beach. The golden sand stretches to rolling waves and crisp fresh air straight off the ocean, unpolluted by human endeavour. Sit in the quirky little cafe, drink coffee and contemplate life.

Best place to watch the sunset! On good days theres a group of surfers who go out which are great to watch and the beach is so clean so its good for all. One of my favorite beaches.

A very good beach spot in Perth. The best part is the lighting at night. So anyone can visit anytime at time. So it's beautiful all the time and refreshing end do the day.
