Perth is on the Indian Ocean and has some of Australia's finest beaches. There is literally mile after mile of beautiful sandy white beaches, often deserted, within easy reach of the City. Surfing, swimming, scuba diving and fishing are just some of the activities you can enjoy. The more popular beaches are Cottesloe and North Cottesloe, both very safe swimming beaches, Swanbourne (nude bathing permitted), City Beach and Scarborough. North of Scarborough the beaches tend to be more suited to wave riding and experienced swimmers. Buses run from outside Sullivans to both Cottesloe and North Cottesloe, about a 20 minute journey.
