For sun, fun and surf
Trigg and surfing seem to go hand-in-hand, yet Trigg Beach has more than just waves to offer. It is complete with a BBQ area, children's playground, and plenty of parking. The playground area is tree-clad, providing ample shade on a hot summer's day. The sandy beach to the left-hand side of the point provides a long stretch of uninterrupted beach all the way to Scarborough.
Trigg Beach also marks the starting point of an incredible walk or bicycle ride along the cliff-lined shore towards Hillary's Boat Harbour. The water is clear and inviting, and there are plenty of nooks and crannies for private picnics and swims. It also offers some calmer waters protected by reef for the kids to play safely.
People spill in and out of the perfectly located café Yelo. The vibrant atmosphere of the café brings people, and their dogs, into the area and creates a lively community feel. The coffee is good, the people are friendly, and the food features an array of healthy options.
Trigg is Perth's most accessible surf break and boast waves all year around, although winter is perhaps the best time for surfing. Be aware though that in summer the surf is over-saturated with body boarders and surfers, all going for the same waves.
Although summer seems the practical time of year to go to the beach, Trigg delivers beautiful scenery and a buzz of health conscious locals all year round. Trigg Beach provides a great day out for a family BBQ, a relaxing day at the beach or a day packed with activities.
