The sprawling white beaches in Perth are sensational, this one tends to be particularly popular. Regular swimmers, picnicking families and sun-bakers frequent Cottlesloe. It also offers a wonderful choice of locations to watch the sunset. Enjoy spectacular views across the Indian Ocean from one of the many cafes and restaurants along Marine Parade or from a tranquil spot on the sand. At the southern end of the beach, a reasonably sheltered reef proves a great spot for snorkeling. The main beach area has showers and toilets.
Great beach - I'm a brit living in perth, and cottesloe is still a favourite. Note that the photo shows lots of seaweed on the beach, but that only happens in winter so don't worry about it. Best times to visit are Oct - Nov, Feb - Apr. Dec and Jan are almost too hot - it regulary hits 40 and over in those months so beach visits during the day tend to be very short. It rains a lot in June, July and August but you still get really nice days (We spent last sunday (12th july) on the beach in shorts and teeshirts so its not too cold - around 20 degrees or so.
this beach is the one of the best i have been to beaches all over the world but i always come back and vist this one when i get the cahnce there is no where like any where else in the world. I just cant get enough. All my family and friends have been to this place and they love it too. You have to come see you there.
This is the most wonderful beach I have ever been to. The beach and the sea are beautiful, I really didn't want to leave. The Sunday session at the Cottesloe Hotel was magnificent, the atmosphere was great and it was absolutely packed full with people from all over the world!
cottesloe beach is the most beautiful beach in the world! Maybe i have a biased oppinion because i'm from perth but that is my belief. There isn't any rubbish in or around the water and its a fantastic beach for swimming or surfing.
this place is beautiful. The coastal drive is relaxing, soothing and with the bars along the road.....it's a great holiday feeling!! The breeze is great and it's a great place to hang out with beer or wine. Oh...and you MUST stay for sunset
Cottesloe IS Australian beach life. For kids doing surf lifesaving training, statuesque females tanning, and bronzed surfers wading into the deep, Cottesloe's waves wash out of the Indian Ocean and into the imagination. Whether you're walking, tanning, swimming, or just looking, Cottesloe is as Australian as kangaroos, as hot as the midday sunshine, and as cool as a Foster's on a summer's afternoon. Recommended.
