Best suburban beach in Australia Mar 11, 2011
Cottesloe beach is the the most popular beach in Perth, and in my opinion the best suburban beach in Australia. it has a beautiful pavilion, a breakwater you can walk along, and plenty of sand to relax on. there are great pubs and cafes above it, and has various events held on it each year.

WA's Cottesloe Beach Mar 26, 2011
I'm not much of a swimmer but I enjoy hanging out on the beach, playing with the sand, sunbathing, and even people watching.

Cottesloe Beach is Perth's most popular beach, frequented by tourists and locals alike, especially during Spring break-Summer.

It's got soft white sand, a cool breeze (depending on the time of day and season), fairly medium waves (in some parts, depends on the season as well), grass banks to lie on, pine trees that gives shade on hot summer days, and cafés & pubs just across the street (also news agents, ice cream parlor, fish&chips place).

So bring on your mats, towels, and coolers and go pick your spot on that looong stretch of white sand.

Have fun! :)

I would've rated Cottesloe Beach as 5 stars, if only their (Perth's) summer time was all year round haha! I've experienced the blast of cold winds coming from the Indian Ocean- Brrrr!!! (and that was in Spring, not even Winter!)...or maybe I'm just soo used to the tropical climate :p

Beautiful Cottesloe Beach Mar 22, 2010
If you are visiting Perth, visiting Cottesloe beach is an absolute must. Cottesloe beach is well connected to the Perth city by train and is on the Perth - Freemantle line. Get off at the Cottesloe station and the beach is a 10 - 15 minute walk from there. If driving there is ample free car parking available, but it can get very busy and full on weekends. Enjoy the soft sand, clean water and the Indiana tea house on the beach. Also try the take aways across the road from the beach!

The best time to experience the beauty of Cottesloe beach is at sunset. If you have time on your hands, picnic on the beach! Showers, BBQ avaailable on the beach. Its ideal for walking, jogging and excercising. It is wheelchair friendly and there is a walkway along the beach.

I hope you like the photos of Cottesloe beach taken in March 2010 during the art exhibition on the beach.

Cottesloe Beach, Autumn 2010 Mar 07, 2010
It’s beginning of autumn season in Perth, 2010. Weather was nice, cool breeze with not-to-hot sun just like a week before. We went to Cottesloe on Sunday, the beach was packed. Arrived around 9 am, and the parking slots were almost full, not to mention, in every one meter there will be at least one adult or one adult holding one toddler, (or even 2..), or a couple walked the dog...

Found some nice artworks along the beach... though there were signs in every item not to touch / climb / jump on them, the kids just loved them and being around the art items, being photographed, or just touched and pointed or starred at them. Also there were some interesting groups (of 10-12 boys aged 5-6) did intense group sports, spotted them swimming, then running, then surfing, followed by a mini marathon swim-surf-swim, and they were all excited, jumping and screaming and panting... gosh I’m jealous, I wish I was having so much fun with water sports when I was kid..

Anyway it was a nice beach, nice artworks, though might be a lil too crowded especially on weekends...

Cottesloe Beach, just 15 minutes west of Perth – the capital city of Western Australia – is a superb place, famous for its white sandy beach and terraced lawns overlooking the Indian Ocean. Arguably the most popular beach in Perth, it should definitely be on the radar of any traveller heading to that part of Australia. Incidentally, John Curtin, a former Prime Minister of Australia throughout much of World War II, lived in Cottesloe at various times throughout his life.
