The huge redevelopment of Scarborough Beach has really brought this beach to life and largely improved the change room, toilet and shower (indoor and outdoor) facilities. Free WiFi is also available on the main central beach and foreshore areas, including the amphitheatre.
Stretching along the entire foreshore is a soft, grassed area, very popular for picnics and BBQ’s (free BBQ facilities and picnic tables are available near the southern beach access). Alternatively, there is a wide array of takeaway and dine-in restaurants along the foreshore to suit every taste and budget.
Near the central beach access, you will find a skate park and free rock-climbing wall, whilst near the northern access you will find a large prehistoric themed playground and free outdoor exercise equipment
During the summer and spring months, this beach comes to life with bands often playing in the amphitheatre and weekly sunset markets. When these attractions are on the beach can become very crowded and parking difficult to find.
If you are driving to the beach, there are roughly 1400 free parking bays along the foreshore, however, they fill up fast during busy summer periods. ACROD bays are available and best accessed from Manning Street, Reserve Street or Brighton Road. Please note parking may change during construction.
Alternative parking is available in the multistorey Wilson carpark, located on Manning Street, where you’ll receive the first two hours free of charge, or pay $5 for the whole day. Rendezvous Hotel also offers paid parking, $5 for the first hour, or $30 for a full day.
If you are visiting via public transport there are many buses that drop directly at the entrance of this beach, plan your journey now via the Transperth Journey Planner.
