Scarborough Beach, Scarborough

#1 of 7 in Things to do in Scarborough
Scarborough Beach is known for great year-round surfing, which made it the site of Australian Surf Life Saving Championships several years in a row. The beach is located within an entertainment district with bars, restaurants, and nightclubs and can be easily accessed from Perth by bus or car. The long stretch of white sand, lapped by warm blue water, attracts local families, as well as tourists from around the world. Crowds pick up on the weekends, when the strip of sand becomes colored with bright towels. There are very few trees here, so consider bringing an umbrella or small tent for shade. Put Scarborough Beach and other Scarborough attractions into our Scarborough journey planning website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Has to be one of the best beaches in Australia. Such a friendly bunch of locals. Got to watch the sunset on top of the hill of Scarborough beach. Was magical. A definite must see.
  • Massive improvement with all the new activities but still some fences up and doesn't look quite complete yet. Very good tourist attraction to show off WA
  • Great place to be this summer or autumn. for a swim at the beach or pool followed by huge variety of eateries to suit all tastes of all ages.
  • Fantastic improvements that have made this Beach even better than before if that was possible. Lots of shade areas and seating to suit all ages.
  • As far as beaches go. It's nice.
