Scarborough Beach, Scarborough

#1 of 12 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.

  • Awesome pl asce to hangout with the kids. Plenty to do in the day and every Thursday night food vans fill the area with a wide range of different cultures. The good is amazing and great atmosphere for all ages.
