Hillarys Marina

Located inside Hillarys Boat Harbour, this beach is 200m in length and very popular amongst tourists and families with young children. The shape and surrounding infrastructure make the beach a sheltered bay, where the water is so calm it’s almost like swimming in a pool.

Ongoing Hazards

Drop off

Families enjoy this beach due to it’s high accessibility to shops and food outlets in the surrounding harbour. Older children enjoy jumping off the jetty, the pontoon with a slippery slide, whilst younger children can swim in the shallows and play around the shaded playground on the sand.

My Beach

There are many free toilet, change room, shower and BBQs facilities, surrounding this beach, as well as large shaded grassed areas to the right and left of the bay, provide the perfect area for a picnic. Alternatively, guests can purchase food and beverages at the many takeaway and dine-in restaurants located in the Boat Harbour vicinity.

With over 2700 free car bays there is ample parking, however over the weekends and holidays it can get very busy. Disabled parking is available close to the shopping precinct of Sorrento Quay Boardwalk.

For boating and watersport enthusiasts, a boat ramp is located 50 m west of the beach, where people frequently launch boats, kayaks and jet skis (we suggest not swimming near this area).

There are many buses that stop at this beach/ from Perth city, catch the Joondalup Line train and alight at the Warwick or Stirling station. Transfer to the 423 bus which will take you to Hillarys Boat Harbour.

For those who choose to visit via public transport, a frequent bus runs past this beach. Plan your journey through the Transperth Journey Planner.

Beach Information

Swimming Info

This is the perfect beach for less confident swimmers, due to the calm, pool-like water. The sandbank here stretches quite a distance before the water gets deeper, meaning swimmers can swim out quite a distance before they can no longer stand.
Locals who have stronger swimming abilities don’t often swim at this beach due to the many surrounding boats, preferring to walk 5 minutes south to Sorrento Beach.

Surfing Info

There is no surf on this beach.
