One of Fremantle’s greatest attractions is its coastline of pristine beaches on the edge of the Indian Ocean. The City’s four main beaches are perfect for swimming, relaxing, kite surfing, paddling and other leisure activities. They offer a range of facilities that can be accessed year round, and are utilised by locals and tourists alike.

  • South Beach – located in Fremantle’s inner harbour, close to the centre of Fremantle. This family friendly beach has superb views of Rottnest, Carnac, and Garden islands, and is the perfect place to enjoy a swim, a picnic or BBQ. Enjoy a coffee or a meal at the relaxed beachside cafe.
  • Bathers Beach – this popular beach inner city beach, located between Fishing Boat Harbour and the Round House, is the perfect place to relax and swim. Enjoy fish and chips and watch the sunset.
  • Port and Leighton Beaches – these stunning white sand beaches are two of Perth’s most visited and loved beaches. Swim, snorkel, wind and kite surf, or just relax and enjoy the view to Rottnest Island. Enjoy takeaway food and drinks from the kiosks at Port and Leighton Beaches. Port Beach has a family friendly cafe and restaurant with views of the Indian Ocean.
