  • Go surfing at Scarborough Beach – Scarborough is one of Perth’s most popular beaches with plenty of café’s restaurants and a spectacular foreshore. There is a regular swell here with surf breaks and white sand.  Grab your surfboard or body board and hit the water.  It’s the perfect spot to watch the sunset too once you finish.
  • Cycle along the West Coast Highway– We are privileged to be alongside some of the most beautiful beaches in the world overlooking the Indian Ocean.
