Best Beaches for Kids in Perth, WA:  A Locals Guide 2024

Living in Perth with two young kids of my own, I’ve always been on the hunt for beaches in Perth that were family-friendly, meaning that I could take my kids for a swim and not be worried about large waves dumping my kids, or rips pulling them out to see – which unfortunately is the case at some Perth beaches.

As both my sons are much older now I feel that I’ve since gained the experience to put together a list of beaches that I would consider the best beach for kids in Perth.

If you do have an opportunity to venture offshore, then there are a few known islands that have some great protected coves and shallow beaches that are great for kids.  

My top island picks around Perth would be:

Note, with the above islands usually you’ll find the east side of the island to be the most protected.

Other islands off the coast of Perth and Western Australia can be found on our main Islands page.
