Cottesloe Beach is an affluent, relaxed area with the most amazing vibe. Most of the laidback action tends to happen on Marine Parade. There is lots of Cottesloe beach hotel accommodation nearby so you can explore the area as much as you would like for as long as you would like. You can while away the hours drinking coffee and eating gelato as you watch the world go by. If you fancy something a little stronger, there are plenty of bars to enjoy a cold one or a cocktail as you gaze out over the sands. The bustling local restaurants are great for seafood (as you might imagine) and many do a pretty mean pizza too.
Visiting the oceanfront pubs at the weekend for the ‘Sunday Sessions’ to enjoy some beer and to listen to some of the best live music around is something not to be missed. While you’re in the area, don’t forget to visit Napoleon Street to check out the surf-wear stores, cool bakeries and designer jewellers. Then, when you’ve had enough exploring, eating and drinking time, why not enjoy the kilometre of beautiful, white sands (or perhaps you’re better doing this beforehand!) You can surf, snorkel and swim until your heart’s content alongside the locals and get in on some gossip!
You can find Cottesloe Beach halfway between Fremantle and Perth. As it’s only 30 minutes’ drive or less from Perth city centre you can easily get there by car or bus. While you’re at Cottesloe Beach there’s so much to see and do, including:
Scarborough Sunset Markets
Scarborough Sunset Markets is THE place to go for amazing street food, entertainment, retailers, music, arts and much more. You can either bring your own food and picnic blanket or indulge in yummy treats from around the world as you browse the well-stocked and interesting stalls.
Enjoy a Picnic on the Beach
Enjoy a picnic in the shade of the giant Norfolk Pine trees at the grassy wide Cottesloe Esplanade. You can relax and watch the ocean or take in one of the many concerts that are held here. Be sure to look out for the amazing rainbow lorikeets that make their homes in the trees.
Have a Go at Surfing
If you’re in the area for a few days or more, why not sign up for a surfing school? You can go straight from your Cottesloe beach accommodation to the ocean and learn some new skills.
