There is nothing like getting away from city living to enjoy spending time at the beach. We all need some rest and relaxation from time to time and where better to get it than Cottesloe? Western Australians are lucky enough to enjoy such beautiful Mediterranean-type weather. We have long hot summer days and cooler generally dry winters. Really, when you think about it, any time is a wonderful time to visit Cottesloe because there is always something to do or see. It’s the perfect place for enjoying the outdoors. Additionally, Cottesloe bars and restaurants offer alfresco drinking and dining, so you won’t do hungry or thirsty when you visit! Let’s find out more about what Cottesloe has to offer.

1. Shopping

There are heaps of great shops in Cottesloe so it’s a great place to visit if you’re in need of a little retail therapy. You can enjoy exploring a range of retail outlets and little boutique shops to pick up something for the home or as a gift. If you wish to explore a little further afield, you can travel to the neighbouring suburb of Claremont. The Claremont Quarter shopping precinct has a wide variety of big stores with lots of designer labels to check out!

2. Sunsets 

You’re probably thinking that if you’ve seen one sunset you’ve seen them all. However, you need to come to Cottesloe to take in just how beautiful the sunsets are here. You can relax in one of the beach bars Perth people know and love while gazing out at the sun going down over the Indian Ocean. Take it from us, it’s truly breathtaking!

3. Beach 

No trip to the coast is complete without a day out at the beach. It brings out the big kid in all of us! Cottesloe Beach is famous throughout Australia as it’s akin to what Bondi beach is to the city of Sydney. This makes it a real must see when you come to Perth, but rather than just looking, why not jump into the ocean for a swim? You can also try surfing, kite surfing, snorkeling and heaps of other fun activities!

4. Explore

Cottesloe enjoys a pretty central location in the Perth region which makes it a great base for exploring Perth City, Fremantle, Claremont and, of course, Cottesloe itself. You can hop on a train at Swanbourne or Cottesloe or alternatively catch one of the very regular buses at Stirling Hwy.

5. Sports

You can try out heaps of sports and water sports at Cottesloe. Imagine playing golf while enjoying incredible views of the Indian Ocean. There’s also a tennis club with courts for hire or you could go for a cycle to explore the area.

To conclude, Cottesloe is an amazing place with so much to see and do! While you’re in the area, why not visit us here at the Ocean Beach Hotel for a few drinks, a meal and an overnight stay? We look forward to meeting you.
