  • The wharf area tends to get all the attention from visitors in Freo, and yet just south of there is a wonderful beach with beautiful white sand and lovely blue water. There's plenty of free parking.....  more »
  • Brilliant local beach, unspoilt and has a large car park. There are a couple of bays here with one particularly for dogs. Sandy beaches and gentle slope into the water. Great for a couple of hours...  more »

  • 2 coffee shops. Beach. Great play grounds for kids. Dogs are allowed on leashes I some areas and right next to a dog beach. Great for a picnic and it's free.
  • The place is so good that it needs more car park bays
