So near the City but so peaceful and pretty. Great walks and views of the ocean and all the ships in the distance waiting to go into Freo.

Lovely beach for a day out. This beach has a nice grass area if you don't like the sand with plenty of barbie's on offer. Great cafe with fabulous food and coffee. Also great for walks along the coast.

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