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.

  • It takes about 50 minutes to change buses at the second station using the Perth Underground from Perth (the bus seems to be linked to the train) and the transportation was much better than I thought. I was surprised that the Indian Ocean was very beautiful. There were a lot of surfers, but there was a pool because swimming was prohibited. All of the facilities are very new and are in great condition, so it might be ideal for families. The sea and the environment are beautiful, but the evaluation might be severe because it is too beautiful and i like a little more natural beach. I want to see the sunset, but i think that the type with the kitchen is good because there is a supermarket because the convenience of the traffic is good. I visited at the beginning of May, so i might have had more tension in the summer. It was colder even in fine weather than I imagined!

  • The beach is awesome and the sea too. If there's no wind is good to take sun and have a perfect natural pool in front of you, if you will find the wind you should start learning surf
  • 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.
