Really enjoy Clancy's, being able to smell and watch the ocean. Have only had a nice meal and good service.

Great beach , though it has got strong " dumping " surf , the surf club is being redeveloped ( completely demolished ) so the place is a bit of a building site at the moment , Clancy's is a great spot for a sundowner ,

Love this beach, great for families, lots of play area. So beach first and then you can have a wonderful dinner at Clanceys fish bar and enjoy the sunset.

The City Beach in Perth is the smaller of the three main beaches that most travellers enjoy visiting. Here, you'll often find more locals wanting to enjoy a quieter afternoon. It also lacks the facilities that Cottesloe and Scarborough Beaches have. There are no restaurants here outside of one cafe.

I'm not a beach person but while living in Perth, I didn't mind going to this beach. It has nice grassy and tree areas right on the beach for those like me who hate the sand. The water was always a good temp and clear. They have grills available and restaurants up and down the boulevard. It's a great place... More

This beach is more suitable for the quick visit before the "Freo Doctor" has arrived, plenty of sand and grassed areas so as not to be too crowded. Just go and enjoy one of the alternative best beaches.

Don't go on a Sunday by bus as the service is awful. What new arrivals to Perth might not realise is that almost the entire coast is beautiful white sand, with clear blue water. It is easy to cook in the sun as there can be limited shade in the summer remember to have something available to cover in case... More
