This is yet another epic Beautiful beaches in WA. Close to Perth CBD and easy to get to via train or in the car. Epic Indian Ocean views and just delightful. Pack a picnic and take your family. It's a lovely place to go.

Will be even better once work completed, could do with drink, snacks actually on the beach, and of course better parking.

Beautiful large beach. Even in hottest months though, the wind is quite strong and in the evenings, chilly even. No shade on the beach at all.

Beach was busy and was difficult to get down to as there is so many building improvements going on. Really disappointed in the young people littering in the amphitheater especially when there is plenty of bins. Many of us picked up but our efforts were ignored. Showers were great and the lawn was a great respite from the hot sand.... More

Aside from the construction activity which is set to completely re-develop the foreshore area, we enjoyed our family visit to Scarborough, where kids used the playground (which is also in process of being expanded) and we had a lovely walk on the beach. One of the iconic white sandy beaches of Perth, it has steep gradient run-off from sand to... More

Scarborough beach currently behind serious construction to create pool, restaurants etc. Limited toilets, lots of noise and less than 20% of the parking it used to have. Forget parking here at the weekend. Dust and construction vehicles everywhere. Who does this in peak season? Go elsewhere

This is one beach that has it all. For the swimmer, the surfer, the kite surfer, the walker, the sight seer, the lovers, the loners, the escapees, the retirees and just about everyone else that likes to be and look at something beautiful.

We were quite disappointed with this beach (on our 4 day stay there) and recommend you don't have high expectations as extensive construction work (not likely to finish for a long time) has wrecked the beachfront and turned it into an ugly eyesore. Better head to another beach in Perth - there are lots of other alternatives.
