Clancy's City Beach
is everything a beachside pub should be. Uninterrupted views of the ocean make for perfect sunset dining. A casual atmosphere and funky music feature throughout the day. They have a huge range of local and imported craft beer and some of the best seafood in Perth. Oh, and thongs and sandy feet are most welcome at all hours.

Where to start with Mullaloo Beach Hotel
. Needless to say it has a pretty poor reputation for attracting the wrong crowd at night. During the day however it's a relaxed modern venue perfect for lunchtime meetups. There's hardly a better place to be on a sunny afternoon than sitting outside with a drink and seafood platter to share. The food is cheap as it is, but daily $10 specials make it even easier on the wallet.
on - you guessed it - Rottnest Island is home to some fantastic meals, including lobster, and a decent range of mainstream and craft beer brands. It's a great place for a casual dinner as the large outdoor setting means you can always have a conversation without having to shout.
White Salt in Sorrento
sits across the road from Sorrento beach. It's a cafe/bar hybrid popular amongst the locals. It is pretty expensive, but the Mediterranean meals are top notch and they offer good weekly specials, happy hour and free nibbles regularly.
. $10 pizza, local music and niche events, and a ping pong table; this little beach side bar at Scarborough Beach is a heap of fun. The food and drinks menus are pretty stock standard but as a relaxing beach pub, you can't ask for much more.
Cottesloe Beach Hotel
Ocean Ones beer garden
is one of the more famous venues of Perth. Having recently undergone a revamp 'The Cott' has turned into a modern semi formal beachside venue. The food is great, the drinks choice is pretty good and the place really comes alive at night. It does however seem to attract a lot of pretentious individuals.
is everything a beachside pub shouldn't be. High dress standards, poor beer selection and small meals with big price tags. However, the wine selection is great, the music laid back and the views over Hillary's Boat Harbour are excellent.
Rustico Tapas Bar
offers fantastic Spanish meals on the Rockingham coast. Everything is for sharing, including $50 cooked-from-scratch Paella dishes for four, now that's cool! The drinks lists are small but there are a handful of rare drinks on offer across cocktails, wines, ciders and beers.
Ocean Beach Hotel
The OBH overlooking Cottesloe
has long been the Cott's less fancied neighbour but the OBH does have the same million dollar views. The various bars are a little more traditional and it boasts a great sports bar and big beer garden. The food is well priced and they have a great range of Mexican food as well. The drinks list however is a little lacking in range.
is the newest addition to Scarborough Beach. Located behind the ampitheatre, it has a good range of well priced beers, ciders and wines as well as a highly regarded food menu, although the food is not as well priced as the drinks. The setting very much suits the beach, it's clean and tidy without being too fancy.
