City Beach is a nice place to visit. Great sand - pretty clean and neat. Good restaurants nearby and good parking possibilities. Not much to complain about if the weather is good.

Never had to catch a bus however I estimate 30+minutes traffic permitting. Try Uber or taxi 15 mins out of peak times.
