Great views, nice walk

Just a nice place to sit on the sand, watch the world go by; go for a walk etc. Always something to see and do at the beach. The views are amazing

Not the best beach, but it is a lovely spot for a swim. There is a small restaurant close by for an afternoon drink also.

When in Fremantle make sure you go for a swim in the Indian Ocean here at South Beach. A safe place to swim in Fremantle. Not many sharks lately.
