Perth’s Best Beaches
No other Australian city boasts beaches the calibre of those found in Perth. Sure, Sydney has Bondi and Melbourne has St Kilda, but in terms of aesthetic appeal, natural beauty, and ease of access to the sand – try to find a place to lay your towel down on Bondi or Bronte on the weekends – no other city comes close to Perth.
In terms of urban beaches, Perth’s are up there with the world’s most iconic, like Rio’s Ipanema, Los Angeles’ Venice, Tel Aviv’s Tayalet, and Miami’s, well, Miami?
For Perth locals, our beaches are something we often take for granted. We really are blessed to have these clean, uncrowded stretches of sand leading to the enticing waters of the Indian Ocean bordering our city in such abundant quantities.
As long time Perth residents, the Bellagio Limousine team knows the best local beaches and would love to introduce them to you during your time in Perth. We regularly escort local residents to our favourite coastal spots, and more than a few have expressed surprise and amazement at what lies on their doorstep.
Whilst beaches like City, Cottesloe, Leighton, Scarborough and Swanbourne are the most famous beaches in and around the city, the city beaches on our list are those that don’t usually make ‘top five’ lists, but are no less deserving of your attention.
A renowned snorkelling and swimming spot popular with families, Mettams Pool is a long sandy stretch of coastline with sizeable reefs and a lovely rock pool where a variety of fish species can be seen. There’s wheelchair access, picnic benches, grassy areas, and if you wander around the headland, you’ll come across a number of smaller, more secluded beaches.
Bennion Beach (North and South)
Bennion Beach North is a designated dog beach but it’s still very clean, and like South beach, it offers some wonderful snorkelling and swimming spots. Both are lovely at sunset and are much more private than Perth’s more famous beaches.
Easily one of the most beautiful of the city beaches, Bailey Beach is a picturesque stretch of sandy shoreline with some outstanding offshore reefs to explore. Little Bailey Beach and Bailey Beach North are also well-worth visiting.
Trigg Beach (North and South)
Trigg Beach South is the sandier of the two beaches. It’s a renowned surf beach as it boasts some of the most consistent breaks in the city, though please be careful and avoid the reef area (Blue Hole) south of Trigg Island as it has strong currents (rips). Trigg Beach North is very different from the sandy southern beach, and offers great snorkelling and swimming in the clear blue and calm waters.
Whether you’re in the city for business, a short break, or to catch the action at the WACA, there’s always time to visit one of Perth’s stunning sandy beaches. Bellagio Limousines welcomes the opportunity to introduce you to some of the many amazing beaches that make our city such a special and unique place to call home
