So fortunate to have this as our local beach. For swimming, best to visit when winds are from the east as you will have a much more relaxing time!

Now that City Beach has been redeveloped. It is a relaxing and beautiful place to visit. Three top class restaurants, bicycle paths, long footpaths, dog friendly, and not least, the glorious beach and ocean views. This location is good for the soul.

Hi if you take an Uber taxi it takes 19 minutes or if you take the number 82 bus from the Perth Busport it takes 38 minutes. It is approx 11.0 km distance from Murray St to City Beach Hoping this helps :)
