After the U2 concerts in Perth, I had a few days to relax and read about Cottesloe Beach. It was an easy tram ride over from Perth. I absolutely loved this place. Wide open and not-so-busy beach. However it was known to have sharks nearby, but did have a helicopter surveillance to warn swimmers of any danger. The blue water of the Indian Ocean was warm and a delight to swim in. Easily one of my most favourite beaches in the world.
