One of the most busiest beaches in Perth is the City Beach. The beach is just a 15 minute drive from central Perth making a very popular destination with the people who live within the city. Even though being so close to a major city, City Beach maintains its natural characteristics. The beach is edged by expansive sand dunes and bush land areas that are home to wildlife such as hawks, mice and rabbits. City Beach is also favored with surfers with surf conditions typically appropriate for beginner to intermediate surfers. City Beach is also the beginning point for the Coast Walk, Cycle Way and the Scenic Coastal Route.
