The clear coastline along with inviting waters is ideal for swimming and surfing. The presence of corals along the coast also makes it an interesting snorkeling spot. Cottesloe is famous for its Sunday Sessions, when beachfront pubs are full with people. Generations of locals have a great get together over drinks, music and sports.
