Visited Cottesloe beach for a swim and coffee in late April. Really good clean water and beach. Coffee shops were a aplenty and reasonably priced. Plenty of parking and some free. Wow. more »
Nice water and shore. Have been here many times and would recommend it to tourists and families. Fairly safe as there are lots of patrols.
Probably the best beach in Western Australia. This place has it all. From a walk out onto the rocks, from the wonderful sand beneath your toes. Cottesloe Beach also has wonderful restraunts. The sunsets are one of the most amazing to view. Highly recommend!
