Cottesloe and Swanbourne
Cottesloe (Cott) is one of Perth's best family beaches and a very trendy suburb with fashionable boutiques, cafes and restaurants. It has low rise development only (so far) and the Perth to Fremantle train line runs through the town centre with Cott Station only 15 minutes stroll from the main beach area. The beach usually has the best surf in winter with the best breaks just south of the main beach towards Mosmon Park. Otherwise it is a cool, clear and fairly calm escape from the summer heat. Cott is also popular with teens and a bit of a place to be seen. South of Cottesloe is popular with kite surfers.

The next beach north is Swanbourne Beach which is more open and has better body waves. The northern border goes into Australian Army land with an SAS base however the beach is open to the public unless live firing exercises are being held. As council by-laws do not apply this has been a popular nudist beach for many years. It is is popular with families and commited naturists and if you intend to hang about it is expected that you go nude as well or the regulars can get quite upset and let you know in no uncertain terms. However women often leave their bikini bottoms on and this is quite accepted. Tourists taking photos without asking permission first are not welcome. In January or February, Swanbourne hosts the famous Nude Beach Olympics. Competitions include nude beach volleyball, tug-of-war, three-legged races, and even a "best bum" contest.

Scarborough

Scarborough Hotels Scarborough Beach Observation City Hotel and Restaurant Complex
Perth Beaches Scarborough is a popular surf beach with sand breaks all along the beach. The section in front of the hotels and cafes is patrolled by surf-lifesavers. You can hire surfboards or just dive in and body surf. This is a really popular beach for children to use body boards too as there is no reef or rocks. Other areas along the coast have reef and shore breaks.
WA Beaches


The coastline off Perth has many rocky reefs with abundant sealife including soft corals, sponges, kelp gardens, stingrays and a variety of colourful fish.
