Cottesloe Beaches in Australia:
Miles and miles of pristine golden sands; sunshine, that soaks you and warms you cosily to the very bones; and a seemingly endless expanse of azure blues dotted with surfers and swimmers; and a Giant-Norfolk-Pines-lined wide, grassy Esplanade – Cottesloe Beach seduces and enchants beach lovers, passer-bys, surfing enthusiasts and swimmers of all ages and sizes!
One of the best beaches in Western Australia, and a surfing and seaside playground for Perth City dwellers and visitors alike, Cottesloe Beach is where you can enjoy the irresistible combination of great sun, sand and the surf. Enjoy the sunny days lazing around on the sun-soaked golden sands; surf on some of the best waves along the Western Australian coastline; and enjoy freshly caught seafood at the beachside restaurants on Marine Parade.
Diving enthusiasts can take advantage of the Pylon to dive in the Indian Ocean; originally built to anchor shark nets for keeping the beach area safe from migrating sharks, the pylon faced erosion by natural forces over the years and ended up as a diving platform for the Cottesloe beach visitors. Families can enjoy many a memorable picnics at the Esplanade; play cricket, look out to the beach and the Indian Ocean and enjoy the many outdoor events held there.
Participate or cheer on the participants of the Annual Rottnest Channel Swim, one of the most important and largest open-water swimming events in the world. Marvel at the many sand sculptures and build your own at the Cottesloe Beach during the Sculpture by the Sea event and/or enjoy any of the events held regularly at the beach. One of best events would be the sunsets over the Indian Ocean – and this can be enjoyed every day of the week, month and the year.
