Scarborough is a coastal suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located approximately 14 km northwest of the city centre in the City of Stirling local government area. It was named after the English beach resort Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
Popular Scarborough beach is a favourite of people from all around the globe. Here is the perfect place to swim, surf, sunbake, enjoy a BBQ on the grass, shops, dine, or party at the pubs. On Thursday nights in Summer there is markets for street food and local hand made things.
Great place for cafe, surfing and the beach. There is also a giant swimming pool if you do not fancy swimming in the ocean.
Perth's own surfer's paradise! Beautiful big waves and nearby cafes, restaurants, clubs and bars. There is even a pool right next to the beach!!

“Perth's iconic Cottesloe Beach is as pretty as a picture. It's one of the city's most popular spots for swimming, snorkelling, surfing and drinking in ocean sunsets over a glass of wine, a refreshing beer or a relaxed dinner. 'Cott', as it's affectionately known, can be reached by car, bus or train from Perth. Take the 15 minute drive from the city, hop on the regular Transperth buses, or jump on the Fremantle train line and enjoy a pleasant 600 metre walk to the beach from Cottesloe station. What makes it a favourite among Perth's 19 sensational white sand beaches is its many charms. Shady Norfolk Pines, smooth terraced lawns and pristine sands offer the perfect setting for a lazy afternoon or family day out. A buzzing boulevard of restaurants, cafes and bars is the place to be seen enjoying a beachside breakfast, lunch, dinner, sunset drinks or a lively Sunday session. Crystal clear waters and consistent swell make it a regular hangout for swimmers, body boarders and surfers, while the rocks and reefs invite snorkellers to hit the water too. In March, you'll also see Sculpture by the Sea transform the foreshore into the most incredible outdoor gallery space. ”
