I was there in fall, but the sand, water, and dunes was still calling visitors. There were people still swimming. The sand is soft and the water is clear. I liked that there were grassy areas to sit on and some shade under the trees.

It's around a mile from the Beach, so if you like Walking fine, otherwise if it was me I would choose a location by Cottesloe Beach which is superb
