A beautiful beach with shallow water for your little ones
If you have young children and want to get them more familiar with the beach, Port Coogee Marina is an ideal spot to start. It has a shallow beach that is great for wading in and perfect for little bodies who are getting used to the water, wading and waves.
Port Coogee Marina is a harbour set among the growing Port Coogee area located on the way to Fremantle and right next to Coogee Beach. It is particularly popular with families due to Ngarkal Beach, a shallow swimming beach.
While the water is shallow, you may notice, however, that there is a definite drop in the water level around 20-30 metres from the shore, so be extra careful to watch young children if they are taking a swim. You can see the change in the colour of the water where the dip happens.
Along with the Dome Cafe, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, plus hot and cold beverages, snacks and sweet treats, the Port Coogee Village shopping centre, which is in easy walking distance and has a supermarket – perfect for parents who tend to forget the essentials when heading out with the kids (yes, me!) There is also a pharmacy, another café and a small number of shops in the centre, plus the unique Roti Burrito Indian-Mexican restaurant.
