I caught the train from Perth Central, simple and easy to navigate. Walked the 1.9km to the end of the road then turned left...and strolled along the beach. The view is spectacular even on a windy day. Cottesloe has many cafes and restaurants to choose...More

An iconic beach here in WA, worth a visit. Beautiful white sand as always here, a couple of restaurants with ocean views. Local residents have blocked so many proposals to upgrade the area. Hasn’t changed much in many many years..

This is one of Perth's most popular sandy beaches. There are nice paved paths for walking. The water is amazingly blue and there are some decent restaurants nearby. It is also a short drive from Perth's CBD.

Crystal clear water and gentle swells make Cott the best place in the world to be on a summers morning

This is undoubtedly Australia's most beautiful urban beach. After you visit here, the likes of Bondi, Coogee, Manly, St Kilda (sigh) and the rest will all pale in comparison. In fact, Cottesloe makes some of them seem awful! If you like beaches and are visiting...More

A trip down memory lane. Pity the wading pool is no longer there, you can just see where it was. Always a shady spot to sit, good facilities and you can watch the world go by.

Love Cottesloe Beach. The beach is clean, there are grassed and sand areas for people to enjoy. Shady trees, snack shop and toilets nearby, plenty of parking. Great swimming beach

Good views on the coastal drive stopping at the many beaches like Cottesloe beach. Enjoyable walk with a strong clean breeze.

The beach is a great place to spend time with family. The weekends are very crowded though and slightly difficult to get a parking nearby - but if you are ready for a short stroll - will get a lot of free parking spots. Overall,...More

There are no organised activities, just personal beach walking, night photography of the exhibitions if you are into it or eating dinner at a restaurant nearby

Sadly not for hire. If you go to the main Cottesloe beach there is plenty of shade on the terraces of lawn south of Indiana building.

It's around a mile from the Beach, so if you like Walking fine, otherwise if it was me I would choose a location by Cottesloe Beach which is superb
