About Dayna J
Lives in Perth, Australia
Since Jun 2014
25-34 year old female
Born and raised in the Australian country, then later moving and living in Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, I enjoy travelling both to remote and populated locations. For me travelling is about discovering new places, cuisines and cultures. I love being immersed into the local life particularly when it comes to food. I enjoy exploring the cuisines at markets and cafes/restaurants that only the locals go to. Although I prefer the warmer climates so that I can enjoy the sunshine on a beach, I don't mind putting many layers on to explore the local sights and enjoy snuggling up in front of a warm fire.
Cottesloe Beach is one of a kind and has it all. The crystal blue waters that are surrounded and protected by a man built groyne allows this beach to have consistent waves that make it easy for any swimmer to enjoy it. Choose to sit on the sand or grass while you soak up the sun on this perfect swimmers' beach.
Located north of Cottesloe Beach, this beach is quieter than some of the other more popular beaches, such as Cottesloe and Scarborough, but may allow you to have your own space on the sand without too many people close by. This beach is popular with those who like to 'beach surf,' 'boozy board' or lay on the sand and soak up the sunshine.
Close to the restaurant Salt on the Beach, near north Fremantle, is one of my all time favourite beaches. This beach is popular for kite surfers on a windy day but is also perfect to sit back and relax on the water's edge.
A popular beach, particularly for younger adults and tourists, Scarborough Beach has space for everyone. This long stretch of beach has plenty of space for those who wish to swim, while still having room for those who wish to catch a wave on their surf or boogy-board.
Rottnest Island has it all! Whether you like swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, or surfing, you are likely to find a good piece of beach space here. Rottnest Island is a small island located only a short ferry ride away from Perth, and is a location where you can choose to either stay for the day or even a week!
Hillary's Boat Harbour is perfect for families. The beaches are sheltered to allow any young swimmer or snorkeler to enjoy the waters without being pushed around by the waves (at least not too much!).
Located an hour's drive north of Perth is Yanchep Lagoon Beach. This popular holiday spot for Perth locals is perfect for families as well as individuals wanting to get their own private space on the beach. Surfing may also be an option here.
Mandurah is about a 45-minute drive south of Perth and is a place where you can relax, explore, and have adventures, but most importantly, have fun! People go to Mandurah to enjoy one of Perth's closest 4WD beaches (called Tim's Thicket), to venture out on jet skis or surfboards, or to wind down with family.
