Scarborough Beach, this is amongst one of the most popular spots for beach-goers in Perth and as soon as the summer months hit, it is swarmed with people on a daily basis and for good reason.
It’s pristine white sand and turquoise waters will tempt any passerby, especially in the earlier hours of the morning when the waves are at their calmest.
As the wind and waves gain momentum later on in the day, the beach sees the water sport enthusiasts hit its shores as the kite and windsurfers set out to hit those waves creating a beautiful display of colour for onlookers.
For those looking for more quiet surroundings, the beach’s long stretch of white sand offers plenty of options for more peaceful spots.
The extensive grassed area above the beach is largely shaded by the majestic native Norfolk Pines as well as a number of scattered little wooden shelters. It provides the perfect space for a good old barbeque or any type of social gathering.
The children’s playground is an added bonus as it gives parents a little break from entertaining. Besides having all the amenities required for a good day out, across the road from the beach are a variety of bars, nightclubs, cafes and restaurants.
The area is also popular amongst tourists and offers backpacker accommodation as well as more upmarket accommodation in close proximity to the beach.
The beach is easily accessible with direct buses leaving from Perth every 8 minutes or by train ( http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/)
